Christmas Eve at FPCU

Join us this Christmas Eve for our Candlelight Festival of Lessons and Carols. We will have an extended Prelude, beginning at 6:45 p.m. so you will want to get to church early. The service itself will begin in the Sanctuary at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, December 24th and will be followed by a short time of fellowship in the Chapel. We welcome all to this lovely service.

Christmas Eve Musical Opportunity

Plans are underway to include instrumentalists at the Christmas Eve service. If you would like to play your brass or woodwind instrument, please contact Marvin Pritts ( or Alice Ploss (
