Congregations embracing change for Christmas

Services at some local churches have a different look this year for more reasons than just the pandemic. Instead of crowded pews in filled up sanctuaries, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Algoma will be holding multiple services between Christmas Eve and Day while also live streaming them online. Pastor John Moll hopes people walk away from their services knowing that even in hard times Jesus will come again.

Members of Algoma and West Kewaunee United Methodist Churches will gather around their computers and smart devices to worship together this Christmas. The congregation taped their own segments to be included in the online service. Pastor Jennifer Emert says she wants her members to feel hope this Christmas season.

This will be the first Christmas service at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Kewaunee led by Pastor Matthew Sprunger, who answered the congregation’s call to serve earlier this year. He wants people leaving his services to know Christmas is just the beginning of the story.

You can find a schedule of some of the local services on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day below.
