Health Precautions for Christmas Eve Services

Dear SCAPC Community,

As we make preparations for our Christmas Eve services (4 p.m. and 7 p.m.), we are aware of the spike in cases of COVID-19 in our city and country. In preparation for these in-person services, we wanted to share the various ways you can participate in these services and stay as safe as possible.

We continue to encourage all who attend worship services to wear a mask. While we are following our city guidelines and do not require masks, wearing a mask is a mitigation measure that helps make worship safer for all who are participating. Masks are also available at church entrances upon arrival.

If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or you are not feeling well, please consider staying home and participating in the livestream; both the 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. services will be livestreamed on our SCAPC YouTube channel or by accessing it through

In addition, at the 4 p.m. service, the Frampton Fellowship Hall will be set up as a mask-only area where the Christmas Eve service will be livestreamed for worship attendees who would like to be here but who prefer additional mitigation measures.

Time after time after time, Christ shows up when the world is darkest. We may prefer a lighter, cheerier, trouble free incarnation, but Craig Barnes, President of Princeton Theological Seminary reminds us, ‘it is easiest to see the light of salvation in the dark.’ May the light of Christ shine in your hearts this Christmas and illumine the path ahead this new year and beyond.

Christmas blessings,
Chris Currie
