Advent by Candlelight

Advent by Candlelight is an event to help women focus on Christ during the busy holiday season.

It can be designed as an outreach to the community or an opportunity to encourage believers.
Through narration, readings, prayer, and music, Christ will shine as the Savior.

Enjoy creating a beautiful ambiance, but know that the power is in the message of the Gospel.
