CRESTVIEW — This Christmas Eve on Sunday, Dec 24, Crestview First United Methodist invites the public to any of the three distinctive ways its members will celebrate the season.
At 9 a.m., the church will meet to carry out Christmas Acts of Kindness, putting together and delivering gifts to firefighters, police officers, restaurant workers, and many others who are working while others celebrate.
At 11 a.m., the church will present a combined worship service featuring a choir performance and a message on how "God Makes This World Our Home."
"You can also join us in the evening for our (6:30 p.m.) Candlelight Christmas Eve Service," a spokesperson said. "All proceeds from this service will benefit the United Methodist Children's home, which offers group homes, as well as foster family training and support to welcome the most vulnerable children among us.
"Whether you want to serve, worship or give, we would love for you to make yourself at home with us this Christmas Eve."
