Christmas Eve Candlelight Worship

The Bross Hotel at the corner of Third and Onarga across the street from Paonia United Methodist Church has graciously agreed to allow us to use their parking lot for a brief Christmas Eve candlelight worship. We will meet in the Bross Hotel parking lot at 6 p.m. Christmas Eve to hear the story of the birth of Jesus Christ. We will sing a couple of hymns and then light individual candles as we share the light of Christ with one another and our community. The parking lot should provide enough outdoor space for us to socially distance, but wear a mask as we will be closer than six-feet from one another while passing the light of Christ.  All are welcome.
