We are winding down the year with joy and generosity as a response to God's great generosity toward us. Christ's love compels us to rejoice, invite, and give this season. We're excited to celebrate Christmas with you!
Celebrate with us at these Christmas events and services.
Christmas Sweater Sunday // December 10
Wear your favorite (or your ugliest!) Christmas sweater to the 9am or 10:45am Sunday service. Take a group photo and share on social media. Use the hashtag #christmassweatersunday and tag us @HPCMadison.
Christmas Eve Service // December 24
At 9am, we'll celebrate Christmas with a family service (one service only). Childcare will be available for those aged 0-3.
Christmas Eve Candlelight Service // December 24
At 6pm, we'll celebrate Christmas with a candlelight service. Childcare will be available for those aged 0-3.
Christmas is a great time to invite friends and family to hear the gospel message and experience the love of Christ through the community of the church. We have invitations available for you at the info desk to pick up and give to your neighbors, family, and friends.
