We welcome you and your family to join us at GRACE this Christmas Eve as we celebrate the birth of Jesus.


Every year, we experience the miracle again. Through the music and the message, we experience the wonder of God’s incredible love in sending the baby Jesus on that holy night. Come and worship at GRACE Church Bethlehem this Christmas Eve.

Noon – Christmas Eve Communion Sermon @ the Locust Street Campus
A message from Dr. Mark Crumpler, and communion.

3 pm – Family Christmas Eve Candlelight Service @ the BECAHI Campus
See the little town of Bethlehem come alive through drama, the singing of carols, and the telling of the great story of Jesus’ birth. Join the angels, shepherds, and wise men as we worship the baby Jesus. Both services will end with a candle lighting experience and a short message from Dr. Marnie Crumpler.  Families are invited to visit with nativity animals on the front lawn before the service.

5 and 6:30 pm – Christmas Eve Classic Candlelight Services @ the BECAHI Campus
The majesty of music and the message of Jesus’ birth fill these candlelight services.

Christmas Eve Offering

This year, we will partner with Truth for Women in their mission to end trafficking in the Lehigh Valley. On the night where the baby Jesus had no place to lay his head, our goal is to raise together $25,000 to support this ministry and purchase a van for transporting women in need of a place of help and hope.
