The 80th Annual Candlelighting
We would like to invite you to The 80th Annual Candlelighting, a Christmas tradition at First Methodist Church in Grapevine. Come join us for our biggest Christmas music event of the year! The FUMCG Music Ministry will be presenting The 80th Annual Candlelighting: A Celebration of Christmas
on Sunday, December 11, at 6:30 PM in the Sanctuary. This family-friendly event will feature many of our church's music groups, including the Chancel Choir, Grace Notes, and Praise Team. The evening will culminate with the Chancel Choir’s performance of the beautiful Christmas cantata The Christmas Light
, accompanied by full chamber orchestra. We will have something for everyone, including a Christmas hymn sing-along and a special time for the kids! Mark your calendars for this all-out Christmas event!
Many years ago, when Candlelighting was first conceived, the service involved all the children and youth in the church and was a community-wide celebration. It was designed to be a gift from FUMC Grapevine to the Grapevine community. In this, our 150th year and the 80th year of Candlelighting, we harken back to our roots... offering a family-friendly Christmas event, open to all, including the lighting of candles, bringing the light of Christ into the season.
We are located at 422 Church Street in Grapevine, one block west of historic Downtown Grapevine. Click here for directions...
