We hope you can worship with us this evening for our 6:00 pm Christmas Eve Candlelight Service called, “For Unto You!” Luke 2:10-11” What happen that star lit night, the birth of the Babe proclaimed in the field, brought “life abundant” to each shepherd and to us. Let’s go to that hillside, sit down beside the shepherds and listen as the angel announce, “For unto you,” and run with them to worship the Babe lying in a manger. Pre- service music begins at 5:45
Question: Is it true that during World War 1, the fighting stopped at the front line on Christmas Eve and Silent Night was sung by the soldiers of opposing armies?
Answer: Yes, it is true. The song was sung simultaneously in French, English and German by troops during the Christmas truce of 1914, as it was a Christmas Carol known and loved by soldiers on both sides of the front line.
