We have two options planned for our CUC family this Christmas Eve.
First, we will have a wonderful recorded service available to be viewed online. In this COVID season, we are committed to making worship accessible online to as many people as possible.
For the second option, we have rented the Deer Creek Stables at Chatfield Gardens to host 4 services on the afternoon of the 24th. We are able to offer 90 ticket reservations for each service. Participants will be seated by family groups with spacing. The venue has heaters and depending on the weather we can open the sides of the space. The parking lot is a short walk to the venue, there are handicapped spots (please let us know if you need one) and there are restrooms. The music will be traditional and contemporary with a quartet.
Please reserve your tickets online by following the attached link.
1st Service: 12-12:45
2nd service: 1:15 -2:00
3rd service: 2:30-3:15
4th service: 3:45 to 4:30 (must purchase tickets for the Garden’s Trail of Lights)
The last service will end when the Trail of Lights show begins so we are required to have attendees purchase tickets (at $10 per person) for the event. We will have wrist bands for admission at the 3:45 service.
We discourage people who have traveled from out of state from attending due to greater chances of covid exposure. If you or guests have traveled or have a guest from out of town, please sign up for the 2:30 service to limit our circles of exposure.
If you have any signs of not feeling well or have had a recent Covid exposure, please do not attend. If you are not able to attend, please let us know so we can share your spots with others.
Could this be cancelled? Yes…if there is a blizzard and it’s 12 degrees. (it is 2020 after all….but we could still sled) For Covid? We will continue to analyze the numbers and determine what is best for the Columbine community. Chatfield Farms tells us they have had a gathering variance from the county throughout the different phases of Covid restrictions which would allow us to gather. That said, we plan to comply with all local and state covid guidelines. Wear your Christmas mask!
