Christmas Eve service planned at Warriors Mark UM Church

It’s December 1 and the countdown to Christmas begins.
With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, buying gifts, preparing meals and visiting family and friends, individuals often forget to take a moment and enjoy the beauty of this festive season.
Many area churches will hold special Christmas eve services, including the Warriors Mark United Methodist Church.
The Warriors Mark Church invites everyone to join together on Sunday, December 24 at 7 p.m. for a Christmas Eve candlelight service to celebrate the true light and miracle of Christmas.
Bring the family and enjoy an evening of candlelight, music and an uplifting message to help participants focus on the true meaning of Christmas.
Also, as a special treat, the Steinbeiser Gospel Band will provide special music during the service.
Weather permitting, the streets of Warriors Mark will be lined with Luminaries, a custom that started in Mexico many years ago as a symbol of light that would lead the Wisemen to baby Jesus’ manger.
