Christmas Eve celebration - Arena at Gwinnett Center

Christmas Eve Celebration - Arena at Gwinnett Center

WHEN: Friday, December 24; doors open at 4 p.m., main program runs from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Children's bell performance at 4:45 p.m. Interpreters for the deaf provided for main program.

WHERE: Arena at Gwinnett Center

The evening is hosted by Grace Fellowship Church’s Snellville, Midtown and Monroe campuses.

“By Christmas Eve, some people are hyped up, some are worn out, and others – because of personal situations – are actually depressed,” states Buddy Hoffman, lead pastor of Grace Fellowship Church. “We want to offer the entire Metro Atlanta community an opportunity to come together, take a deep breath, and experience – maybe for the first time – why Christmas is even celebrated in the first place.”

This year’s Christmas Eve gathering will utilize the Arena at Gwinnett Center’s full auditorium, increasing the seating capacity to 10,000 from last year’s 8500 seats. No tickets or reservations will be available, as all seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. Admission and parking are free but an opportunity will be provided for anyone who wishes to help with the expenses of the event.

Merging music, speaking, video and drama, the evening will encourage personal participation in exploring and responding to the good news of Christmas. Traditional songs of the Christmas story will be mixed with contemporary songs of worship as thousands of voices join together.

The Arena at Gwinnett Center is located near I-85 at 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth, GA 30097. For directions, or for more information, please visit
