Holiday Services

The New Church at Boynton Beach would love to have you join us at any of our holiday services.

Palm Sunday – In addition to our regular worship format, you may pick up a palm branch as you enter the church, to be carried forward and laid on the chancel during the first hymn.

Good Friday Evening – This 7:00 PM service is an adult-oriented service with readings and sermon. Holy Supper is included in this service.

Easter – The congregation is invited to bring an offering of flowers to celebrate the Lord’s resurrection (potted plants and flowers may be planted in the church grounds, and the rest are donated to shut-ins and local charities). Often flowers are brought forward in procession during the first hymn.  Sometimes a breakfast is organized before the service, or a lunch afterwards. Please check the calendar for confirmation.

New Church Day (often held on the Sunday nearest June 19th) – is a special family service. This celebrates an event recorded in True Christian Religion, namely, the Lord’s calling together of the disciples who had followed Him in the natural world, and the sending of them throughout the spiritual world to proclaim the good news that the Lord God Jesus Christ reigns. This took place on the 19th of June, 1770. We use this service to celebrate all that is implied by the Second Coming of the Lord. The children may pick up a New Church flag on their way into the sanctuary for a flag procession. The red and white of the flag symbolizes love and wisdom from the Lord. Small gifts are given to the children afterwards. Please call ahead to be sure a gift is prepared for your child.

Thanksgiving Family Service – 10:00 AM service (11:00 AM if it is followed by a potluck Thanksgiving dinner.)  Please confirm by calling the pastor or checking the latest Boynton Beach Breakers on this website). Most of the worshipers bring fruit, vegetable or non-perishable offerings to the service for a harvest procession. This offering represents gratitude to the Lord for all the harvest of natural and spiritual gifts that He gives. After the service, the offerings are boxed for delivery to shut-ins or a local charity.

Christmas Advent Service – on a Sunday shortly before Christmas, we have a special evening service (and no service that morning) to visually reenact the Christmas story.

Christmas Eve – a 5:30 PM service for families, this service has one address for all. Small gifts are presented to the children afterwards. Please call ahead to be sure a gift is prepared for your child.

Christmas Day – This service, like our Sunday service, includes a children’s talk and Sunday School.  Check a current calendar or call to confirm that this service has been scheduled.
