First United Methodist Church of Austin invites you to worship with us on Christmas Eve.
Five services provide flexibility for all ages and stages of life. Our 12:00 p.m. service is ideal for those whose plans make it impossible to participate in our later services. Our 4:00 p.m. family service is a wonderful way for families with young children to worship together. The candlelight services at 6:00, 8:00, and 11:00 p.m. feature carols, choral offerings, scripture, Holy Communion, and the candle lighting to celebrate Christ’s birth.
