Celebrate the Christmas season with Northside throughout the month of December. Download an Advent Guide to prepare your heart, serve your neighbors and celebrate during a special Christmas service.

Christmas Eve

Celebrate Christmas Eve with Northside on Sunday, Dec. 24 with one of our three Christmas Eve services.

Our morning Christmas Eve services will be identical and held at our normal Sunday morning service times of 9 and 10:30 AM.¬†Children’s programming will be available for infants through age 3, with our kids and students worshipping with the adults in our main Worship Center.

Then, we will have a special candlelight Christmas Eve Night of Worship at 5:30 PM.¬†This service will be different from our Sunday morning services, and no children’s programming will be offered.

Christmas Meals

For 34 years, the Northside family has been preparing, packing and delivering Christmas meals on Christmas morning. Volunteers are needed to help pack the meals at 8 AM and to deliver the meals at 10 AM. This is a great way to center your Christmas celebrations on Christ.

Our team is planning for 450 meals this year. Meals will be packed in styrofoam “to-go” containers, and delivery routes will be organized geographically across the greater Springfield area.
