Candlelight Christmas Eve Services

The culmination of the Christmas season at Salem is our Candlelight Christmas Eve service. Plan to share in one of the most beautiful and meaningful worship services of the year. Each service has beautiful music, a message of hope and the cherished tradition of passing the candlelight – the light of Christ – as we sing Silent Night together.  All are welcome as we celebrate the birth of Jesus and the hope He brings into the world.
