Modern Christmas Eve

Held in The Outreach Center, these two services are for those who want a modern twist to traditional Christams Eve services.

Everyone's invited, Christmas sweaters and PJs are welcome—and encouraged—and the whole service will take about an hour. There will be carols, a message, some video elements, candle-lighting and lots of fun!

Service Times:

Family Christmas Eve

Held in the Sanctuary, this service was designed with children and families in mind! All of our services are kid-friendly, but especially this one. We'll have puppets, videos stories, hymns and carols, a message from Pastor Bob, communion and more for the whole family to enjoy.

Our address is 2747 East Sunshine Street, Springfield, MO. We have two main places of worship, separated only by a strip of parking lot.

What about my kids?

We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week—and at Schweitzer Kids, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Schweitzer Kids program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the Schweitzer Kids experience. Kids Worship is offered at every Schweitzer UMC service, from infants to 8th grade.


we Can't wait to see you
this Christmas Eve!
