What to Expect at Christmas


Lessons & Carols

Sunday, December 22, 8:30am & 10:45am

In the season of Advent, we prepare ourselves to hear once more the message of the prophets, the joyous song of the angels, the journey to Bethlehem and the Son of God lying in a manger. 

Join us for worship as the Adult Choir presents Joseph Martin’s exultant cantata, “The Winter Rose” which tells the story of Jesus’ birth through scripture and the singing of carols. 


Christmas Eve

Tuesday, December 24, 5pm, 7pm & 11pm

Christmas Eve worship experiences at 5pm and 7pm include a mix of music that includes worship music and Christmas carols led by the NFUMC praise band. The reading of scripture that tells the story of our Savior’s birth, a message by Pastor Jimmy and Holy Communion call us to remember the true meaning of Christmas. Each worship service lasts about one hour and ends with an NFUMC favorite tradition of singing “Silent Night” by candlelight.

Christmas Eve worship at 11pm is a more reflective and traditional setting for worship. Christmas carols are sung simply with piano or guitar accompaniment. The telling of the birth of Jesus through scripture, a message by Pastor Jimmy and Holy Communion call us to remember the true meaning of the season during this hour before Christmas.  The service ends with the singing of “Silent Night” by candlelight. 

All ages are invited to all services and everyone is invited to take Holy Communion. If you are seeking Jesus and are looking to worship with a loving church family, you have come to the right place. Come as you are and meet us here.


New Year's Covenant Renewal

Sunday, December 29, 10am 

We will worship in a single, combined service in order to renew our covenant together as a church family. As we celebrate the ministries of NFUMC and share our vision for the future, we seek God’s guidance as we enter the new year. We look forward with excitement for what God will continue to do here in Nolensville and throughout the world.


Twelfth Night Jazz

Sunday, January 5, 6pm

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear the NFUMC Praise Band and a few special guest musicians cut loose on some original settings of Christmas carols. An evening of contemporary jazz music with a backdrop of moody lighting in our historic sanctuary is an excellent way to celebrate the holiness of Epiphany.
