Our Sunday evening Candlelight service is a close-of-the-day event and another occasion to connect with friends before and after worship. It begins at 10 p.m. every Sunday when classes are in session. Candlelight features Holden Evening Prayer, moving music sung by candlelight. Even if you are unfamiliar with the music, you'll quickly learn your part. Come and experience it Sundays at 10 p.m. in the Main Chapel! All are welcome!
Pastor Charlene Cox is the main speaker for Candlelight.
