Sunday night is First Assembly’s annual candlelight service.
We didn’t want it to look like what a traditional candlelight service is.
Where everyone lights and holds a candle and sings, this little light of mine.
I’m just assuming, because I’ve never actually have been to a candlelight service, but that is what I picture in my head.
What it will look like.
We aren’t using our main stage at all.
Three small stages in the middle of the room.
Seating in a big circle around those stages.
Additional project so that everyone can see the visuals.
As you walk they walk in.
Simple, live nativity scene in lobby with joseph, mary, and 8 pound 6 ounce baby Jesus.
Then move into the auditorium, with low lights, and piano playing.
- Spoken Word
- Scripture reading
Like popcorn on all three stages.
All about the miracles that surrounded Jesus’ birth.
Lots of them.
Then we tell God that we need a miracle in our life. This is where the candles come into play.
That’s all I can say.
I don’t want to ruin it.
Does your church do candlelight services?
What’s it look like?
