Triumph United Methodist Church will host a traditional Christmas Eve candlelight service open to the public at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 24, at the church, 759 N. 3906th Road, Triumph.
"Songs and Scripture" is the theme for the program. The service's music will blend familiar Christmas carols with scripture texts that relate to the carol, according to a news release from the church.
Organizers said they are hosting the program in the afternoon so attendees do not have to drive in the dark and spend the evening with their families.
A free will offering will be taken, with all proceeds going to the Mendota Christian Food Pantry.
