A Christmas Classic Celebration
is a unique candlelight service that incorporates scenes of Christmas that are all around us. Popular Christmas songs such as "Silver Bells," "I'll Be Home For Christmas," and "Do You Hear What I Hear?" are combined with the traditional Christmas hymns.
Six brief meditations are spaced throughout the service and are given in the place of a sermon.
Easy to present, this service requires no rehearsals or props, yet involves the entire congregation in singing the familiar songs of Christmas while moving from the Annunciation to the joy of Jesus' birth.
