CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING On Friday November 25, at 8 PM, Word of Life Church will kick off the 2011 Christmas season and continue a new St. Joseph area tradition with the 3nd annual lighting of our huge Christmas tree. We invite you to enjoy Christmas carols, hot chocolate, and cookies on the Word of Life Church circle drive during the tree-lighting ceremony.
If you have out-of-town relatives visiting for Thanksgiving and you’re running out of ways to entertain them, this is a perfect way to kick off the Christmas season and make a great holiday memory. You’ll have a great time getting into the Christmas spirit as you’re surrounded by Christmas carolers and beautiful decorations. "Recognizing the meaning and importance of the Christmas season, we wanted to offer something free that our entire community could participate in and enjoy," said Brian Zahnd, Word of Life's lead pastor.
Everyone is invited, so bring your family, friends, a warm jacket, and some Christmas cheer for a festive evening on Friday, November 25. Admission and refreshments are free for the Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony. There will also be a Thanksgiving Communion service at Word of Life that evening from 7 – 8 PM. Word of Life Church is located at the corner of Cook and Riverside Roads in St. Joseph, Missouri. Check out wolc.com for more information. ###
