On Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, First Parish (225 Boston Post Rd.) will offer two services to celebrate joy, reflection, and tradition. The 4 p.m. service is ideal for families with younger children. The highlight of this engaging service is a retelling of the Christmas story with lots of impromptu audience participation. This service will be led by Rev. Deborah Bennett and Kate Holland, Director of Lifespan Education.

At 7 p.m., a candlelight service with candles, carols, and reflections will usher in Christmas Eve. Come join in the music, story and inspiration of the season and share in the sacred ritual of passing the light. This service will be led by the Rev. Deborah Bennett.

Note: There will be no morning service on Sunday, Dec. 24.
