Christmas Eve Service report from Sandy M

     If you were unable to be in church on Christmas Eve, it was an awesome event. Some of the congregation from the Buffalo Korean UMC joined in the celebration. Their choir sang “O Holy Night” – in Korean and English. Two young ladies played a wonderful cello duet and sang “Nearer, My God to Thee”. The Bowmansville Choir sang “He Is Born”. They were great!  Rev. Youngjae gave a meaningful message. Then there was a portrayal of “The Story of the Birth of Jesus Christ”. We were blessed to have the Siekmann Family represent the Holy Family. Several members of the Skare Family were an angel, shepherd, and Magi. Amy MacPeek was the narrator. Many thanks to Ron Skare – and Deanna for putting this together. Special thanks to all who participated and made the story so meaningful to those gathered. After the candles were lit and “Silent Night” was sung, everyone walked to the manger and then left in silence. It was a wonderful celebration!
