Northwestern Invites Community to Christmas Tree Lighting Service

Orange City area residents are invited to join Northwestern College students, faculty and staff for the annual President’s Christmas Tree Lighting Monday evening, Nov. 26.

The 7 p.m. worship service in front of Zwemer Hall will include music by a brass ensemble and the Women’s Choir, remarks by President Greg Christy, Scripture reading by theatre students, and Christmas carols sung by the audience as they light candles. It will culminate in the lighting of a Christmas tree, followed by the lighting of additional Christmas decorations around the campus green.

After the service, attendees are invited to enjoy refreshments in the Vogel Community Room of the DeWitt Learning Commons.

In case of inclement weather, the President’s Christmas Tree Lighting will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 27.
