Singing “Silent Night” by candlelight is one of our most sacred moments on Christmas Eve.  Although we won’t be gathered in the same building together, we are still sharing God’s light with the world. We want everyone to have a candle to light at home for our Christmas Eve services. Stop by the church at the following times to pick up your family’s candle and a special gift from us. Pick up extra to take to friends or neighbors!
