VFM  Annual Candlelight Service
Sunday, December 19 at 5pm at the Meeting House

As we gather in silence on the approach of the Winter Solstice, Friends will be invited to light a candle in celebration of the Light within and the miracle of Christmas.

We will conclude indoors with several instrumental selections by Friends, Dave Pruett (guitar), Clara Bortolot (violin) and Ed Brantmeier (flute).

Weather permitting, we will continue our celebration around a campfire with s’mores and hot cider.

Please Bring

  • An unscented candle and holder
  • A mask to wear indoors
  • 8-10 small treats (food must be wrapped except nuts in shells or citrus fruit)
  • 8-10 simple holiday greetings (signed)

These treats and holiday notes will be placed in bags for each Friend to take home and to give to Friends who were unable to attend.

This special service is free and open to the public. Our Covid-19 practices will be in place.
