The Kyrie helps us begin the liturgy.
Let us unite together to pray the Prayer of the Day.
Hear Ross read today's lesson from Isaiah.
Sing "Jesus, What a Wonderful Child" with Zion.
Listen to our amazing choir members sing "Of the Father's Love Begotten" for our Gospel Processional and hear Pastor Berry read the powerful nativity story from Luke.
Hear Pastor Berry's sermon about how we can learn a thing or two about the gospel of the ordinary from Jesus, born a simple man, in a simple, even dirty, place.
"Hark the Herald Angels Sing" is tonight's wonderful Hymn of the Day.
Let us pray with Zion, our neighbors near, our neighbors far away, and all those in need of God's grace.
Listen to today's beautiful anthem from our marvelous Zion choir and our amazing musicians.
Listen to "In the Bleak Midwinter," yet another outstanding anthem from our Chancel Choir.
Hear Pastor Berry send us into Christmas with a beautiful Christmas Benediction.
Grab your candle and join us for our (not-so) traditional candlelight vigil as we sing "Silent Night" and celebrate the Birth of Christ together as one.
Let us all sing together the praises of the Birth of Christ as we go tell it on the mountain, over the hills, and everywhere.
Listen to yet another superb postlude as we go out into the Christmas night.

David is AMAZING. Thank you David and family for your Christmas gift to ZELC. The worship service was excellent. Thank you Pastor Barry, Christian, our choir and all the folks behind the scenes. Communion meant a lot to us, even if we were sitting on our living room couch.

Thank you to everyone for the beautiful service! We watched from Maryland and it was nice to see the familiar sights of Zion. Thank you, David and choir for the beautiful music. I have missed the Chamberlin family Christmas music!
