Churches harmonize Christmas meaning

"Oh Come All Ye Faithful," and "Silent Night" will be heard at more than a dozen Douglas County churches this weekend in preparation for Christmas.

Services provide an opportunity to reflect on what Christmas is about and coming together to celebrate.

"It's just a holy week," said Patti Meath, a volunteer at St. Gall Catholic Church. "Sunday (Christmas Eve) is the last day of Advent, so we're bringing a close to that. This is also the day of our Lord's birth so we are treating it as such."

High Sierra Fellowship will offer communion with a special choir performing Christmas songs under a candle lit service.

"It's a very warm feeling and peaceful service," High Sierra Fellowship Secretary Meaghan Hall said.
