Pin light flashlights will be distributed to all who attend, to represent the candlelight segment of the service. The public is urged to attend and participation this event. Special parking ushers will be on hand to assist in parking and leaving the church parking lot.
The Worship Committee, session, deacons and congregation of Edgemont ARP Church invite the community to join them and enjoy this special service.
