                         CHRISTMAS ON WEST 7th
In recent years we have held a Christmas Eve Eve Service on December 23rd. This service has been geared toward the family, youth and children. In this new reality we have found ourselves, we are adapting this service and taking it to the street, literally.
Christmas on West 7th will take place on West 7th Street, literally on the street. A mass gathering permit has been filed with the city, requesting to have West 7th Street closed from Garden Street to High Street.
The service will be thirty to forty-five minutes in length beginning at 6:00 PM. We currently plan to have a petting nativity, hot chocolate, music, and sing Silent Night while holding a light.
Please place this special night on your calendar and begin inviting others in the community. We need a few items and volunteers to make this a successful, less stressful and very welcoming evening for community guest.
Patio propane heaters to be placed in the street to establish warming stations. If you have one, thank you for considering providing propane and stationing yourself near, for safety.
Volunteers outside to welcome, assist attenders with directions, seating, and assist ushers in passing out items needed for the service. 
Volunteers inside the Fellowship Hall to direct guest to restrooms
A truck to hold a spotlight in the bed, in place at 4:30 PM.
