Candle Light Services in Artesia

The calendar of events for December 2021 sure looks a lot more exciting than the holiday events of 2020! As the season is about to reach its pinnacle over the days of the 24th and 25th of December, come join a candle light service at one of the local churches. Here are a few advertised candle light services welcoming one and all: 

  • Catalyst Church Candle Light Service at 5 pm 1302 Hermosa Drive
  • Faith Baptist Church Christmas Eve Service at 5pm 401 South 20th Street
  • First United Methodist Church Candle Light Service at 6 pm 500 West Grand Avenue
  • First Baptist Church 6pm Communion and Candle Light Service at 6 pm 322 West Grand Avenue
Here’s what happens during a Christmas Eve candle light service: choir performances, congregational Christmas carols, scripture readings, prayers and possibly a short sermon or special speaker. At some point during the service, the sanctuary will go dark and the congregation will light their candles and enjoy the flickering effect of the flames to commemorate the birth of Christ. Usually, battery operated candles are offered to the smallest members in attendance so that they may participate in the moment without the pressure of a lit candle.
