Zion Christian Church in Beaverdam will be celebrating Christmas in July on the 23 in Zion’s Old Firehouse. Why celebrate Christmas only once a year? Decorations, Christmas hymns, presents, pot-luck lunch, and a Celtic Christmas concert. Chris Lucas’ trio will share Celtic Christmas music during worship and will perform a short concert after lunch. Special mission emphasis: toys for Hanover Safe House. We will have a “store” stocked and available where children’s items can be purchased and donated to this worthy cause. Christmas music. Food. Giving. Free concert. Everything you love about Christmas–without the cold. Come worship with us and celebrate the birth of the Christ Child! Zion Christian Church. 16158 Beaver Dam School Road, Beaverdam, VA 23015.
