Christmas Events

Rev. LeSette speaking at Christmas Concert


The Campus Christian Center (CCC) offers special annual events through which it both emphasizes the distinctive Christian identity of Berea College and leads the College to accomplish this major facet of its mission.  Each year, the Center provides opportunities both to educate about the many forms of Christian experience and to nurture as well as to develop the distinctive ecumenical Christian community of the College.

Prior to the end of the term, the Center holds an Open House in the Fireside Room of the Draper Building. The Center provides refreshments, so that students, faculty and staff can take time for breaks and moments of relaxation beside the fireplace as the term winds down.  December 2022 dates/times TBA.

Christmas at Berea

Christmas Concert at Union Church

This annual Christmas concert, co-sponsored by the Berea College Music Program and the Campus Christian Center, is held in early December.   All are invited to attend this popular event and to join in the singing of traditional carols and enjoy performances by several different college choirs and ensembles.  Plan to attend this special Christmas celebration to usher in Berea’s Christmas Season!

The CCC also provides one other event during its Christmas activities, for two very important parts of the College community – the staff of Facilities Management and Public Safety. As a demonstration of the Center’s appreciation for their service to the entire campus, the Center prepares a breakfast of appreciation for the staff of these departments.  Staff and faculty across campus are welcomed and encouraged to attend to show their appreciation as well.
