First Presbyterian Church, Knoxville, December 2021
Welcome to this year’s edition of downtown Christmas services. I’m doing it a bit differently this year because Christmas falls on Sunday and that shakes some worship schedules up a bit. While I normally post Christmas Eve services, this year I’ll include both Saturday and Sunday services. Please feel free to comment with corrections or additions. It is sometimes harder than you might imagine to put these service times together.
I hope you can look back on this year and find some happy memories, move through this holiday season with some element of joy, and look forward to happier times in the new year. However or whether you celebrate this season, look for time to be with the ones you love. Nothing is more important. Here’s the (mostly) annual list of downtown Christmas services for those of you who might be interested.
