There’s joy in the heart of the city!
From our Christmas pageant to our trademark services and music accompaniment, Old Stone offers an array of holiday programming that has something for everyone. Bring your kids to our fun, exciting glow-stick service, or choose a more traditional occasion with one of our two candlelight services on Christmas Eve (and don’t forget the wonderful selection of Christmas music beforehand!).
We hope you join us this Christmas in the heart of Public Square in downtown Cleveland!

Other Advent and Christmas Activities
November 25th through December 16th: Sing We Now of Christmas – The Christmas Carol Bible Study
Wouldn’t it be fun to get together and sing some of our favorite Christmas carols? That’s the basis of the Advent study that will be led by Dr. Yoost on Sundays at Old Stone from November 25th through December 16th from 11:30am until 1pm. Each week as we sing, we will look at the texts of Advent hymns and Christmas carols, including some secular songs, to prepare us for the coming of Christmas.
