OUR 11TH ANNUAL
CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING & CAROL SING - will be held on Sunday, December 16, 2018 @ 5:00 PM. In addition to the
tree lighting and carol singing, everyone will enjoy fresh home-baked pastries
provided by the members of the congregation, and other food and refreshments
from Delicious Orchards and Dearborn Market. The evening will begin indoors
with the Carol Sing and will conclude outdoors with the lighting of our
Christmas tree and Nativity! Our goal is to offer families and friends an
opportunity to gather together to share some of the simple joys of the
Christmas Season, twinkling lights, carol singing, and lots of tasty goodies.
This evening promises to be fun for people of all ages, so everyone is invited
to attend. Thank you and we hope to see you there! -Jeremy
