Christmas Eve Services

Both services are open to the entire family.
For your convenience, kids programming will be provided for infants—3 year olds. 
Services will be live streamed.



Christmas Concerts

We invite you to join us for our annual Christmas concerts as we fill our Sanctuary with heartfelt music to remind us of the meaning of Christmas. Childcare provided for infant - 3 years.

We are excited to partner with The Gideons International this Christmas to help share the story of Christ with others. It’s called Birthday for Jesus, an opportunity to celebrate Christ’s birth by donating Bibles to over 200 countries and territories in His honor. To participate in this opportunity, we have donation envelopes located at our Christmas Display in the Celebration Center or online. In each envelope you’ll find a decorative card that is yours to keep.

   Volunteer  

Families and singles are encouraged to 'adopt-a-room' in the nursery for Christmas Eve and Christmas Concert services. Staffing nursery rooms on Christmas Eve is notoriously difficult for every church. This is a great opportunity for a family to adopt a room and serve young families, guests and celebrate Christmas with children in a meaningful way. There are 7 rooms available to adopt during the Christmas Eve services and 4 rooms available to adopt during the Christmas Concert. A background check will be required. Contact Vicky Sweet at vsweet@cstoneepc.com for more information.

This Christmas we will be providing gift boxes, with an invitation tag to our Christmas services, for you to fill with sweet treats and give to someone in your life who needs Jesus this season. Because there are so many hurting people in our community, we want to extend the love of Christ by giving a kind gift and opening the door for people to accept the gift of Christ. Will you join us?

Boxes will be available for pick-up at the Christmas Display.

The Guatemala mission team is collecting jeans and black dress shoes for children and teens at Casa Bernabé children's home. Please place donations in Cornerstone collection bins by December 22.
