Christmas Eve Candle Light Service Dec 24th, at 5 p.m.

By on December 22, 2014

Dear friends, as I look outside of my office window it is snowing!  Can you believe that just a few days before Christmas, snow is gracing our presents.  As I sit here working on the Christmas Eve worship, playing through a host of traditional pop Christmas songs, seeing what I would like to use as prelude music to prepare us as we gather before Christmas as a family of faith, I am reminded of the reason why we come together.  We come together whether at church or with family, because it is a time to share the love that the birth of Christ brings to our hearts.  I personally wish to invite you, your family, and your friends to this years special time of worship.  We are going to have a great time singing old familiar Christmas hymns, reading of the Christmas story, special reading by Marcia Hall and Dawn Skerritt, solo’s and duets from Virginia McDugall, Ross Hodgkins, Pastor Steven, and Tom Skerritt, and communion.  I hope many of you will be able to join us as we gather at 5 pm for this special time of celebrating the eve of Christmas.  For those of you who will not be able to join us, we wish you a Very Merry Christmas and a Blessing for the New Year!

Peace,

Pastor Steven
