Aired 2013-14. Christmas Eve at Saint Mark United Methodist ChurchWichita, Kansas
Like Charlie Brown Christmas Specials, Christmas Eve Worship Services have been a fixture in Christmas programming line ups for decades. For millions of families, televised Christmas Eve worship is as integral as eggnog, trees, ornaments and yes GIFTS!
Saint Mark United Methodist Church in Wichita Kansas in partnership with UMC Communications is pleased to present for this ABC Christmas Eve Special, RETHINK CHRISTMAS: THE GIFT
Viewers can expect a visually engaging, powerful and well thought out worship experience that will tell the story of the ultimate gift to the world, Christ.
From sacred dance, to dramatic interpretation of scripture, powerful preaching, to a soul-stirring 100 voice Gospel Choir, featuring national recording artist Cynthia Wilson, viewers will come away with the full understanding that when we Rethink Christmas we turn away from our Christmas shopping lists, toys, and Rudolph the red nose reindeer, and instead are lead towards the true gifts of Christmas, love, family and serving our neighbor because God’s ultimate gift - Our Savior, The Lord has come!
