First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) will again be hosting their Annual Community Candlelight Communion Service on Tuesday, December 24, beginning at 6 p.m. The church is located at 1625 N. Broadway in Shawnee.
The service will include special music, reading of the Christmas story, a short message, and Holy Communion. The Disciples of Christ believe in open Communion and all who attend are invited to share in the sacraments. Everyone is welcome to this special worship experience.
After each person receives Communion, they will be provided a candle and requested to circle around the sanctuary. From the Christ Candle, a candle will be lit, and the flame will be passed from person to person until everyone’s candle is lit and concluded with singing “Silent Night.” If you need to bring children or grandchildren in pajamas, feel free.
First Christian Church is an open and affirming church where everyone is welcome to worship and to participation in all areas of the church.
