MDPC is offering a variety of online and in-person services on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning, including contemporary, family-friendly, and traditional.

Safety Protocols on the MDPC Campus

Four Services Offered at Eight Times on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day
  • The 4:00 PM outdoor service will be outdoors on the MDPC Soccer Field by Parking Lot B.
  • For Candlelight Services (5:30, 7:00, 8:30), the venues will be filled in this order: Sanctuary (live service), Chapel (service streamed from Sanctuary), and Fellowship Hall (service streamed from Sanctuary). Please note that the 5:30  is generally our largest service, so you may consider one of the last two candlelight services if being in the Sanctuary is important to you.
