7:30PM Traditional Service: Our Later service was held at 7:30 PM, and is our more traditional Christmas Eve Service. In this service we look at the incarnation of the Eternal Creator God in the birth of Jesus as an act of great love, emphasizing the fact that God came in Jesus to be good news to all. The inclusive love of God is revolutionary, and has great importance to us today. This service may also be accessed through our church Facebook page, starting a little before 7:30. You may have to refresh your page to get the video to appear. If you do not have Facebook, you may join us directly on Zoom at this link.
WALK TO BETHLEHEM: Each year, the four downtown Basking Ridge Churches, the Catholic, Episcopal, Methodist, and Presbyterian, join together for this annual "Walk To Bethlehem" worshipping together, being the full community of the Lord, as we travel, worshipping in each other's spaces, coming together in the truest sense, to worship the incarnation of our Eternal Creator God. Watch here, and see this wonderful event, in a virtual rendition of this annual event: https://youtu.be/8eBfBywDRQU

BJUMC Service of Lessons and Carols, 2020: This year, we are combining the scripture reading and prayers of current members of our church with the carol singing of Christmases past. Enjoy this service, as we look at the age old message of the Gospel, celebrating the incarnation of our Eternal Creator God in the Birth of Jesus Christ, in both scripture and hymn. May God bless us all with a new understanding of these events, bringing to life God's love and grace, filling us with a hope that transcends, a hope in the eternal, which supercedes the worries of today. May this hope fill your homes as we remember the Glory of God, bringing you to a new understanding of Christmas, and a new deeper faith. Amen.
