On Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, 6 p.m., visit gracechurchvt.org to experience their Christmas Eve candlelight service from the warmth and safety of your home…magnificent Christmas music, prayers, hymns, and a message from Pastor Alberta for this sacred night.
It has long been a tradition to bring white gifts to the manger. This year these gifts will once again go to local missions such as the Boys and Girls Club, NewStory House, Dismas House, and local schools. Simply wrap your gifts in white, bring them with love, and place them in the vestibule by the covered West Street entrance before Christmas Eve. (Doors will be open Wed. 8 a.m.-3 p.m., and on Christmas Eve.) Some ideas for gifts: sweatpants, shirts, games, books, personal care items (soap, toothpaste, etc), kid’s backpacks, towels, art supplies. (Gifts like candles are not great.) To donate money, please use the mailbox slot in the door off Center St.
