The New Church of Concord would love to have you join us at any of our holiday services.

Thanksgiving Service – The congregation is invited to bring an offering of fruit as a token of thanks.  After the opening of the Word, during the first hymn, the people come forward by the center aisle to present fruit to the minister and then return to the pew by the side aisles.  A regular service is then given.  After the service the food offering is taken to a local charity.

Christmas Tableaux – A worship service of nativity scenes with little movement and no speech is presented on the chancel. While a tableaux is being shown, the minister reads the story it portrays from the Word.  Christmas hymns and special music are included.  This is a service for all ages and is held on a Sunday in December.

Christmas Eve – A candlelit service for families, this service has one address for all.
