We gather for a very special tradition on December 24th, Christmas Eve at 5:00 pm and 7:30 pm for a candlelight worship service.
You can also participate through the livestream or recording on our website at www.ststephenslutheran.org.
We will welcome the light of world from God, coming to us in the babe, the son of Mary and Joseph, in a stable where the friendly beasts were kept. We gather in the night and sing our beloved songs and share this light with one another as we pass the flame on our candles. This is a wonderful remembrance of how we devote ourselves to God’s ways, shared with us in Jesus Christ.
I truly look forward to being together in this way… as close as we can get to that night in Bethlehem. We pray: “Come anew, O Child of our dreams.”
Grace and Peace,
