Interactive Christmas Eve Church Service

Come for the Christmas carols. Come for the candlelight.
Come for the joy of God’s love coming to us in a little child!
At First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood, we create an engaging, interactive and family friendly worship experience on Christmas Eve. Complete with little shepherds and angels we remember the story of Jesus’ amazing birth, weaving into the performance the joyous music of the season followed by a brief meditation from Pastor Kennedy and the beautiful lighting of the candles. And we do all of that in about an hour so children and families can attend and participate more easily.
At First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood everyone is Welcomed, Invited and Loved. We’re proud to be child-friendly, family-friendly, LGBTQ-friendly, and everybody-friendly.
Feel free to be who you are!

Christmas Candlelight

As we live out our vision of inviting and welcoming everyone into God’s amazing love, we invite one and all to join us.
At First Presbyterian of Hollywood, everyone is welcome from those who are already following Jesus to those who are simply spiritually curious or simply craving some Christmas carols, candlelight and Holiday cheer.
Wherever people come from, whatever your color or ethnicity, whether you live in a million-dollar home or have no home at all, and no matter who you choose to love, at First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood, everyone has a place in God’s family.
We would love you to find a place here too this Christmas!

Christmas Children’s

We welcome your children to participate too!

For Christmas Eve, we’d love to have your children share in the experience by being part of the sharing of the Christmas story. We have shepherd and angel costumes to share and minimal rehearsal time to allow for busy family schedules. If you are interested, just email Daniel Williams, our family ministries director at

We hope to see you this Christmas Eve as we celebrate God’s amazing love for us all!
