Luminaries lit the walk to this year’s candlelight Christmas Eve service that for the first time featured the Festival of the Nine Lessons of Christmas. Nine short scripture readings telling the fall of man, God’s promise of a Messiah, and Christ’s birth alternated with congregational and choir singing. The choir sang both “Ave Maria” and the Hallelujah Chorus of “Handel’s Messiah.” Everyone sang “Silent Night” as the light passed from hand to hand.
Join us at 7 PM on December 24th for our candlelight Christmas Eve Service. Our Church is handicap accessible from the Erie Station Rd. side.
You will be truly blessed by a service filled with wonderful music and a message from our Pastor, Jill Bradway. Come and enjoy celebrating the birth of our Lord in the oldest active church in Henrietta.
In December, we celebrated the bicentennial with an old-fashioned Christmas caroling party organized by Bicentennial Committee member Pat Floyd. Our neighbors at the Church of the First Born joined us for caroling at Woodcrest Commons and Westtown Village. We returned to the church for a chili supper and Christmas treats.
