Christmas Candlelight Vespers is a time for Community Church members and friends to gather and celebrate the coming of Christ. Our Adult, Children’s and Bell Choirs under the direction of Minister of Music, Frank Crosio, will offer wonderful music of the season in the beauty of our sanctuary by candlelight as the story of Christ's coming and birth are retold in scripture and song.
All are invited to join in singing beloved Christmas Carols, and then to share food and fellowship together at a dinner in Gardner Hall sponsored by the Board of Membership Life & Development. Come, have your hearts warmed and spirits cheered through participation in this time-honored Community Church tradition.
Advent Bible Study with Rev. Dr. Ian Rottenberg at 9:15 am in the parlor.
Based on the book "Advent for Everyone: A Journey through Matthew" by N.T. Wright
