Special Worship Services

Bon Air Presbyterian Church follows the PC(USA) liturgical year, and celebrates certain Sundays and festivals with special Worship Services.

Christmas Eve

Family Service

Our Christmas Eve family service is held in the late afternoon and offers a child centric format perfect for everyone in the family to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

Candlelight Service

Our evening Christmas Eve service is a candlelight service filled with hymns celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.   The chancel is filled with poinsettias and a special Nativity concert of Christmas music precedes the service.

Ash Wednesday

A service of quiet reflection that begins the season of Lent.  The service includes the imposition of ashes.

Palm Sunday

As Jesus made his way into Jerusalem, the people in the crowd celebrated with palm branches and placed them down at Jesus’ feet. We celebrate with hymns and palms are distributed.

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday begins the Three Days (or Triduum), remembering the new commandment that Christ gave us in word and deed as he taught us how to love one another. We conclude the service with the traditional “stripping of the church” in silence, preparing us for Easter Sunday.

Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday is the center of the Christian year. Our church joyfully proclaims the good news that is at the very heart of the gospel: that Jesus Christ is risen from the dead. We celebrate with brass to accompany our chancel choir to enhance our festive celebration. Traditional Easter Lilies adorn our chancel.  Many times, the celebration also includes an Easter Egg gather for children, the flowering of the cross and an Easter breakfast.

Pentecost

Pentecost celebrates the Holy Spirit descending upon the early followers of Jesus when they began the church.
