We will be joined by Celtic musicians Michael O’Leary and harpist Carol McIntyre in presenting a very spiritual and meditative concert featuring song, music and a few scripture readings and prayers by Pastor Jon! Take some time to relax and meditate on the coming of the Light! Please join us for this very uplifting and inspirational concert during this Christmas Season. Take some time to quite your heart and let the Holy Spirit in and uplift you!
