West End United Methodist Church

There are several special services held throughout the year. Christmas is marked by several. The first is the Candlelighting Service held the second Sunday of December at 5:30 p.m. Here through a service of lessons and carols all choirs participate in this retelling of the story of Christ’s birth. The service ends with the lighting of candles and singing of Silent Night. There are two Christmas Eve services, an early service particularly designed for children and a later one (10:30 p.m. with music beginning at 10:00 p.m.) that celebrates the service of Holy Communion and ends with changing of the paraments at midnight. Then in Lent we have services on Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday. Please check the church calendar for times.
