Christmas Eve Traditions at First Church

First Congregational Church of Greenwich will offer four different services for Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, each service designed for a special audience. From the first service at 10 a.m., primarily designed for families with young children, to the 9 p.m. Candlelight Service that particularly attracts high school and returning college students, all age groups will have ample opportunities for worship and celebration on this special day of the year.

The afternoon and early evening services, at 3 and 6 p.m., will feature performances of First Church’s traditional Christmas Pageant, “Once in Royal David’s City,” re-enacted by adult and school-age members of the congregation in colorful period costumes. All four services will feature scripture readings and prayers to accompany the seasonal music and pageantry.

First Congregational Church is located at 108 Sound Beach Ave. For more information, visit
