Berean Christian Church Schedules Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

Berean Christian Church in Murphysboro will be holding their annual Candlelight Service on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2014 at 10:00 p.m. This annual tradition has been taking place at the church since 1981.

The service will be a time of hearing the biblical Christmas story, prayer and singing Christmas hymns. Each year dozens come to the service to have a time of quiet reflection and worship prior to Christmas day. Minister Troy Humphrey loves the atmosphere created in the service. “This is not a loud, boisterous celebration that lasts for hours, but a last quiet moment in reverence and peace before the holiday.”  He went on to indicate that it is the perfect time for personal reflection on the true meaning of Christmas.

The service is open to the community for anyone who wishes to attend. Berean Christian Church is located at the intersection of 16th Street and Illinois Avenue in Murphysboro.
