Christmas Eve Worship

Presbyterian Church of Western Springs celebrates the season with the annual Christmas pageant on Sunday, December 17 at 5:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to be a part of the Christmas Pageant presented by the children and youth of the church.

Listen to the prophets foretell of the coming of The Lord. Follow Mary and Joseph on their long journey to Bethlehem, following orders to pay their taxes due. While they are there , their baby boy Jesus, is born in a stable, surrounded by gentle farm animals. Travel with The Wisemen as they follow the Eastern Star, leading them to the new born king.

Join us for a great family time focused on the story of Christmas.

The Gift of Warmth

We continue our annual tradition of collecting and donating gently used coats and jackets for men, women and children at Margaret’s Village (formerly Maria Shelter) and Believe Family Shelters on the south side of Chicago.

We’ll also be collecting new hats and mittens/gloves for children and adults at both the Margaret’s Village/Believe Shelters and Sharing Connections in Downers Grove.

The Christmas Giving Tree

Support local food pantries by selecting an “ornament” and then bring that particular food item(s) to church and place it under the Christmas Giving Tree in the Narthex.

Clean Water for Nueva Paz

Support our goal of providing clean water to our sister church in Cuba.

Read about these and other offerings in the December Glad Tidings.


As in years’ past, the 5:00 p.m. service will be a family-centered service with a theme from the Lukan Christmas story. A candle lighting service will again be a part of this worship.

The 11:00 p.m. service will also focus on the Christmas story as found in Luke 2:1-20. It too will be a candle lighting service and will include the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper.

Because Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday this year, the Session voted NOT to have our regular 9:30 a.m. worship that day and focus instead on celebrating our Lord’s birth at the 5:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. services.
