Use this as a resource to guide you through the Acoustic Eve Children’s Service.

If you are joining us online near the end of the acoustic service, we will sing Silent Night. To welcome the baby Jesus, the Light of the World, you might want to have your own candles ready to light.


Welcome! We are honored that you have chosen to join us for Christmas Eve here at First Presbyterian Church of Glen Ellyn!

If you are looking for a vibrant, family-friendly community of believers, consider visiting again, in-person or online. Through mission, small groups, education, a family focus, and inspiring worship, we love to bring the work of Christ alive locally and around the world.
