Christmas Eve Worship Services

Join us on Thursday, December 24, 2020!

Everyone is welcome at Hinsdale United Methodist Church

3:00 p.m. Signs & Symbols of Christmas Interactive Outdoor Walk

Everyone is invited to an outdoor interactive display for the whole family on Christmas Eve, Thursday, December 24 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. You will be greeted as you enter the East parking lot of the church to give you instructions and direct you where to start. During this short walk through the grounds of the church, you will look at nine of the most beloved images of the Christmas season and enjoy readings that tell the heart of the Christmas story.

Mask wearing and social distancing will be the shared practice of all in attendance. For more information and questions, please contact Jennifer Austgen, Director of Children’s Ministries, at jennifer.austgen@hinsdaleumc.com.

4:00 p.m. Drive-In Christmas Eve Caroling

Please come celebrate Christmas with us on December 24 at 4:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Church’s North Parking Lot! Bring a full carload of your immediate family and join us for Christmas Eve Sing-Along (or Hum-Along, for that matter!). You do not have to get out of your cars. But, if that is what you want to do, we encourage you to bring warm coats and blankets, as well as your own lawn chairs. For those staying in your car, tune to FM107.01 on the radio to hear the broadcast of the prayers, music, and carols. 

Please use the Garfield St. entrance to enter if you plan to remain in your cars; and Park Ave. entrance and East Parking Lot if you feel comfortable sitting outdoors. No through traffic will be allowed between two parking lots. Let us fill this Christmas with songs and prayers, light and music! Let us celebrate the true reason of the season! To help with set-up or flow of the day, please contact Paul Eident or Bill and Sherry Somers; for questions, please contact Pastor Young-Mee at youngmee.park@hinsdaleumc.com or 708-203-6616. Mask-wearing and social distancing will be the shared practice by all.
