Five tips for celebrating Christmas with HPUMC

    We are so excited to welcome you to HPUMC on this special day.

    Each Christmas season, we rejoice in the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and give thanks for the gift of God’s Son!

    Be sure to explore our wide range of service styles and times to find the best service for you to attend on Christmas Eve at HPUMC.

    Christmas Eve is such a special day when we get to proclaim the long-awaited Messiah has come! We are so excited to welcome you to HPUMC on this special day. Here are some important things to know to make your experience meaningful:

    Arrive early 

    We suggest arriving 30 minutes prior to the start of the service. That way, you can more easily find a seat and have extra time to get settled.   

    Ride the shuttle 

    Plug “3063 SMU Boulevard” into your phone or follow the signs to park at Moody Garage. Our shuttle will pick you up and drop you off at your door. It’s easy!  

    How can we help?

    We will have extra staff and greeters to welcome and help you find your way! Ask anyone wearing twinkling Christmas lights.  

    Children welcome

    Kids are welcome in any of our worship services! Grab a children’s worship packet from one of the purple bins, and don’t forget that the Family Nativity Service at 11:00 am is a great option, too. 

    Looking to avoid the crowds?  

    We recommend one of our two Traveler’s Services, the Family Nativity Service, or our Candlelight and Communion Services at 8:00, 9:30, and 11:00 pm. 


    Lastly, don’t forget that we’ll have combined services on December 29, with a single 9:30 am service in the Sanctuary and a single 11:00 am Cornerstone service. 


    Share your story!

    During this challenging time, what have you seen, heard, or been a part of? Something big? Something small? Something simple? Something extraordinary?

    No matter where you’ve noticed God at work — in your family, community, job, or elsewhere — we’d love to talk to you about it.
