Below is a short story we wanted to share with you! Special thanks to our secretary, Mary Drotleff, for sending us this story!
On Christmas Eve, a small child had no gift to give the baby Jesus. When she prayed an angel appeared and said “whatever you give from your heart will make Jesus happy”. So, the girl picked some weeds and as she took them to church, they changed into a brilliant red bouquet of poinsettia flowers. From that day on, the bright red flowers were known as the “Flores de Noche Buena,” or “Flowers of the Holy Night.”

Speaking of Christmas, we invite you to join us this Monday for our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service at 7 PM!
