Christmas Eve at Marble Collegiate Church

Christmas is Here

Christmas Eve at Marble Collegiate Church celebrates the story of Christmas through word and song ---

And the Angel said, “Don’t be afraid. I’ve got something good for you: good news, great joy. For unto you is born this day, over there in the hills, in the City of David—a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And you’ll find Him wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”

Christmas Eve at Marble Collegiate Church is a dynamic, joyful program filled with beloved carols such as O Come All Ye Faithful, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, and Joy to the World plus life-changing stories of faith and a powerful Christmas message from Dr. Michael Brown.  Shot at the historic Marble Collegiate Church and featuring the music of the award-winning Marble Church choir under the direction of Ken Dake.  The music will include such stirring favorites as:

Go Tell It on the Mountain
What Child is This?
Angels We Have Heard on High
Silent Night  

Christmas Eve at Marble Collegiate Church also features world-renowned singer songwriter Ken Medema who performs Watching the Sky, Bring Me a Rose and Hush Missus Teenage Mary.  The program also includes a stirring version of Joy to the World with the Marble Gospel Choir and band.

As Dr. Brown says, “A humble birth in an almost unnoticed manger in a tiny off-the-beaten path town hardly seemed newsworthy.  And yet, more than two thousand years later we are still celebrating the “good news of great joy” that occurred there.  Something began that night in Bethlehem that has continued for twenty centuries, transforming the world … and empowering us to find life worth the living.   


Marble Church’s roots reach back almost 400 years, yet the congregation continues to grow and thrive in progressive and innovative ways.  Under the visionary leadership of Dr. Michael B. Brown, Marble provides dynamic, positive spiritual direction to a diverse and embracing congregation in the heart of New York City and to the world via its media ministry.  Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, one of the greatest religious figures of the 20th century, led Marble Church for 52 years and wrote “The Power of Positive Thinking” while at Marble.

Christmas Eve at Marble Collegiate Church is a production of MarbleVision, the media Ministry of Marble Collegiate Church, under the direction of Christina Morano Keiser with strategic direction from Bob Marty.
