Knights Ferry News for December 30, 2009

POSTED December 29, 2009 3:04 p.m.

Christmas Eve there was a large gathering on the outdoor patio of the River’s Edge for the Knights Ferry Community Church’s Christmas Eve service. The Frymire’s lit cross shone down on all. Alex Ray, Jordan Ray, Kylea Coston and Amber Coston played the opening prelude. The church’s Choir, directed by Peggy Van Vliet, sang “Emmanuel, Emmanuel.” Pastor Leverne Tanis welcomed all and led the opening prayer. The Choir then sang “One Still and Silent Night” and Pastor Tanis spoke on “Your Light Has Come.” Peggy Van Vliet then sang “O Holy Night.” The children of the church, in costume, took over the rest of the program, reading verses and lighting the Advent Candles. The audience joined in singing of carols. The Children’s Handbell Choir played “Angle Carol” and 3-year-old Cadance Ryland loved ringing her bell! Everyone’s candle was lit and all processed from the patio to the restaurant for refreshments.
