Worship Lab: Order of Worship for Christmas Morning II

Because it is special to have a Sunday morning worship service on Christmas, we thought we might ask a few of our Worship Design Collective members to offer their congregation’s order of worship for Christmas Sunday. See below for insights from Emily Vermilya. To see the first Order of Worship we shared, click here

Our context is as part of The Wesleyan Church denomination, free church environment, located on the campus of a large Christian University in a mid-west blue-collar community.  We will have only one service hour this day versus our usual 3 hours (our congregation thins a bit during the holiday season since so many are connected to the University which will be on break).
