Christmas Eve Services at the Lewes Presbyterian Church 2020

Christmas Eve is traditionally a joyful time of gathering in worship to celebrate of the birth of Jesus Christ.  However, 2020 will be different due to the Covid-19 pandemic.   Because of the Governor’s November 20th revisions to the restrictions on large gatherings limits, LPC must limit each service to 60 worshippers.  Therefore, we have added in-person services and live-streaming YouTube options to accommodate as many worshipers as possible  Our current plans, subject to changes in Delaware guidelines, include the following in-person and video worship service options.  Reservations are required for the in-person services.  Click the button below to complete your reservation.


Christmas Eve Services


4:30 pm and 6:00 pm   Family Christmas Eve Services in the Fellowship Hall

These 40-45 minute services will include traditional Christmas Carols, an unrehearsed play by the children present in each service, and will close with Silent Night while holding candles signifying the coming of the Light of the World.   Both Family Services will be live streamed on LPC’s YouTube Channel.


7:30 pm and 9:00 pm    Traditional Christmas Eve Services in the Sanctuary

These 40-45 minute services will feature special music, traditional Christmas Carols, and a short meditation by Pastor Greg.  The service will end with  Silent Night and the lighting of candles. 

A prerecorded version of the Traditional Service will be posted on the LPC YouTube channel at 7:30 pm Christmas Eve.
