December 10 ~ The Annual Beautifully Presented “Candlelight Carols” Event Announced

Sun., Dec. 10 (4pm): The First Baptist Church (16th & O Sts., NW) will be presenting its 60th annual Candlelight Carols service, featuring the church’s choirs and instrumentalists and joined by the Runnymede Singers.

This annual service has been a much anticipated local tradition since 1956, when several Dupont Circle-area church choirs decided to feature the beautiful acoustics of the then-new First Baptist Church sanctuary by offering a joint holiday service. The program is free of charge, though a voluntary offering will be collected to benefit So Others Might Eat (SOME), an interfaith, community-based organization that assists the poor and homeless in DC  For more info, call 387-2206.
