Joy of Christmas

Every year we look forward to gathering with friends and family to experience the joy of Christmas. Join us for outdoor festivities and a one-hour service centered around the birth of Christ. We believe that the world was changed forever when Jesus was born, and that’s why we celebrate every year. We would love to see you!

Christmas Eve at ACF Church

Something for everyone!

Festivities

Bring your friends and family for a free photo opportunity with a live reindeer. There will be live music outside as well as hot cider and snacks for the whole family.

Special Christmas Music & Message

Everyone loves Christmas music with a special Christmas message. We will sing and celebrate the season together with a live band and Christmas songs. Then we’ll have a special Christmas message for all ages to enjoy.

New Year’s Eve Event

As part of the holiday season, ACF Church will be hosting a free fireworks show for Eagle River at Lion’s Park on New Year’s Eve. The event will be from 6-8pm with the firework show beginning at 8pm. Food trucks will be onsite and there will be plenty of warm fire-pits to gather around.

  • I think Christmas at ACF does a really good job of bringing the community together and really getting the word of God out to people to realize the importance of God and what His purpose is. It’s also very welcoming, and for people who may not have anyone to celebrate Christmas with, it can be comforting for them to have somewhere to go that’s so welcoming. Makes Christmas better for everyone!

  • The Christmas services I’ve attended have really opened my eyes to what Christmas is truly about. There is just a sense of peace and community at the church that you can’t get any where else. It is for everyone, no matter where someone is at in their journey with Christ. And of course worship is the amazing!

  • Christmas Eve at ACF amazes me every year. Not because of the mind-boggling number of people who attend these services. Not because you can have a picture taken with a reindeer or sled dogs. It is an opportunity for connection. For so many people, Christmas Eve is the one service they come to every year. That one message, that one handshake, that one smile may make a life-changing difference to someone. Learning about the birth of Christ may be a rebirth for anyone who passes through the doors. And It’s not only the excitement of celebrating Jesus, it’s the excitement of watching Him change lives. It’s a blessing to have this church family, and to have ACF be my home for the holidays.

  • After moving to Alaska, our family felt at home with ACF during the holidays as the Christmas Eve service provided a warm celebration of Jesus’ birth while giving a unique Alaskan experience with local reindeer. A great time for the entire family of all ages!

    - Kelsey & Scott

  • I love Christmas at ACF because there are many different service times and I feel comfortable bringing friends and family who don’t normally attend. The service is only an hour, yet so uplifting and filled with great holiday elements.

    - Alison

  • We love Christmas at ACF because their services are modern, creative, and entertaining but still take us back to the Christmas services we had as kids!

    - Jay & Nikky

  • ACF is home for us and Christmas Eve service is an awesome experience. We love the welcoming enviornment, rockin’ music, and impactful message.

    - Jen & Reed

  • We loved it so much we invited our neighbors and went again the next day.
