Celebrate Jesus’ birth at three services
Christmas at the Cape Elizabeth United Methodist Church will be celebrated at three services — two on Christmas Eve and one on Christmas morning.
The first Christmas Eve service will be at 6 p.m., focusing on families and featuring the traditional Christmas pageant. This year’s pageant will have a theme of stars and angels and the sanctuary has been decorated in a way you must see to believe. It is a true spectacle, thanks to the efforts of Ruth Dufresne and the Sunday School classes.
Ruth Dufresne and one of her Sunday School classes prepare stars for the Christmas services.
The Second Christmas Eve service will be the Holy Night communion service at 11 p.m., complete with the music, meaning and contemplation of the night.
On Christmas Day, there will be one service at 9 a.m., combining worship and fellowship.
For the Christmas morning service, we are inviting all families to bring homemade breads that represent family traditons and heritage. We will share the breads during a continental breakfast following worship.
Please join us for one or all of these Christmas services.
Sunday School classes have prepared plenty of Christmas decorations that will transform the sanctuary into a real life Silent Night.
