Christmas Candlelight Service

On Sunday, December 21st, Lansdowne Baptist Church's congregation, extended families, and friends celebrated Jesus' birth with a beautiful candlelight service. We heard lessons from Old and New Testament Scripture related to the birth of Jesus. We celebrated with familiar carols. We reveled in the talents of a young singer and two trumpet players who added to the service. The highlight of the evening was when the sanctuary descended into darkness except for the light of a single candle. From this, in a beautiful traditional ceremony the light of Jesus Christ's message was spread through the whole assembled body of believers and together we sang Silent Night.

This wonderful, deeply meaningful service took the efforts of roughly twenty dedicated individuals, some of whom went on to serve a terrific, festive meal afterwards. Their efforts in making the night a truly worshipful experience are deeply appreciated.

Consider yourself invited to next year's Candlelight Service.

Through these red doors (red is symbolic of joy)
you are always welcome!

May you and your family enjoy the blessings of Christmas.
