ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - The United Methodist Churches of Atlantic Highlands and Navesink are proud to announce their special 2015 Advent Season services.

On Sunday, December 13 the church will host their annual Blue Christmas Service at the Navesink location. This is a night set aside for those who may feel alone during the holiday season; those who struggle and mourn rather than celebrate. This service will offer encouragement and strength, and help provide hope with the news that Jesus came into the world.

The Christmas Cantata service will be held on December 20 at 10am, also at the Navesink Church. Join the congregation as they celebrate the birth of Christ through music. The Chancel Choir, under the leadership of Music Director Conrad Erdt, will use the gift of song to rejoice that Christmas is approaching, and with it the gift of Jesus to the world.
