This was the scene at our Christmas Eve services last night. Our kids were the "acolytes" who lit the candles before the (second) service at 7:30 They were so proud of themselves. Andrew really wanted to pass the offering plates, too, as you can probably see from the photo.
Christmas Eve Services
They were very serious in their trip down the aisle with the light of Christ.
Right up onto the stage they marched, ready to light the candles.
They only needed a little help from dad.
Here is Andrew, hoping that he will get to collect the offering. He had already been practicing lighting the candles over and over again and was super excited to get to do it!
Merry Christmas, from our family to yours! We hope the joy of Christ's birth is renewed in you this holiday season and throughout the new year!
