We look forward to this evening of good cheer and voices raised in song! Please join us as we celebrate the holidays with our annual Christmas Carol Sing-Along, led by our own musical impresario, John Sherer. Make sure this lovely evening of fellowship is on your holiday calendar!

We will also be collecting a "white offering" of socks for our Chicago Lights Elam Davies Social Services guests, who need socks all year roundparticularly during Chicago's cold winters. Please bring new, white athletic or tube socks, unwrapped, which we will  deliver to the Social Services team for distribution.

As usual, our evening will begin with appetizers, followed by dinner and a presentation. 

Reservations for dinner ($25 per person) must be made no later than Tuesday morning, December 3 online (preferred) or by contacting Anne Ellis
