Formerly known as our Christmas Eve Eve service (our Christmas Eve Eve Squared), Christmas Chaos is one of the newer traditions at Christ Church. Our first Christmas Eve Eve service was held in 2014 to offer a Christmas Eve service for those who were traveling for the holiday but wanted to experience Christmas Eve worship with their church family, who might be uncomfortable in a more traditional or formal church setting, or who just wanted another fun and meaningful Christmas experience to add to their calendars.
Just as with our first Christmas Eve Eve service, you can expect many of the same things at Christmas Chaos this year: a warm, light-hearted, and child-friendly atmosphere; upbeat Christmas classics by our contemporary praise band; hot chocolate and Christmas cookies; a fun photobooth to take Christmas photos with your family and friends; and the story of Christmas told in a new and unique way. Most importantly, Christmas Chaos will challenge each of us to see the Light in the midst of the chaos—the chaos of the season, the chaos of the circumstances of Christ’s birth, and the chaos of our world.
We’re not surprised that this annual service has become a favorite event for many at Christ Church. Here’s what people are saying:
“We love singing carols while eating cookies!” – Amanda Flowers
“I just love that the kids are able to be kids and participate in the service!” – Hillary Alexander
“I love that it mixes the fun, festive spirit of the season without losing the focus on Jesus.” – Lisa Bunch
“I love that my active girls can wiggle during the service and it is not only accepted but encouraged and enjoyed. It is a service MADE for the children to participate in the excitement of the season as they are told the incredible reason we should all be excited.” – Beth Lewis
Ready to be a part of the fun?
