First United Methodist Church in Newton will have two services on Christmas Eve. The public is invited to attend either or both.
The 7 and 11 p.m. candlelight services will be a Service of Lessons and Carols. Special music will include the Jubilee Ringers, the Chancel Choir, soloists Rachel Faidley and Joy Stout, and a vocal duet by Bryce & Leah Hunter. Jean Ibbotson will be the organist.
The altar will be open for communion for one-half hour before each candlelight service. You are welcome to come anytime in the half hour prior to either service, and the pastor will offer the sacraments at the altar.
