Local Christmas Service Schedules

Church services for Christmas Eve and Day

The fairly mild December and lack of snow may certainly not have the feel of a holiday season, but take one look at the lights on homes and the lack of parking spaces at shopping malls and you’ll see, it’s Christmas time.

Though it is uncertain when exactly Christmas became a celebrated holiday. In recent decades the Christmas celebration has expanded to include people from all faiths and backgrounds, celebrating common themes of hope, charity, peace, and love.

In this season of family and togetherness, many of us will return to our hometowns to see relatives, friends, and loves from many Christmases ago, and to reflect upon the ways we have grown through the years.  

Perhaps you’re among those families that will attend church service on Christmas Eve or Day, but you’re unsure what times the local services will be held. Below you’ll find the times of local church services for Manchester and Lakehurst.  And of course, to you and your loved ones, have a very merry Christmas.
