Advent is a special time we prepare our hearts and minds for the birth of Jesus Christ, born in a manger over 2,000 years ago.  During this 4-week period, Monticello hosts several worship services designed to help you connect with God this season, as well as a couple special events like the Night of the Nativities, the Cantata, and Breakfast with Santa.  

Christmas Eve candlelight worship will be at 5:30pm and 7:30pm on Tuesday, December 24. The 5:30pm service is focused on families with children while the 7:30pm service is a traditional candlelight service.  Come, be a part of Christmas Eve Candlelight worship at Monticello United Methodist Church this year.  We'll save a seat for you!
