Community invited to candlelight Christmas Eve service at First Presbyterian Church of Lewiston


Mon, Dec 13th 2021 01:40 pm

The First Presbyterian Church of Lewiston will open its doors to the community on Christmas Eve. All are welcome to attend the candlelight service in the historic Old Stone Church at 505 Cayuga St. “This is Noel – a Christmas Eve Service of music and story,” will begin at 6 p.m. Robert Hull, music director for the church and renowned Western New York organist, will direct the choir.

The church, established in 1817, is the oldest and most historic in the village. It played a significant spiritual role in many of Lewiston’s most historic milestones. Of particular note, was its place in the history surrounding the Underground Railroad. During this important Civil War period, a bright light was displayed in The Old Stone Church steeple as a signal to Canadian neighbors that slaves were about to be transported across the Niagara River to their shores and freedom.

Parking is available in front of the church and in a large lot directly behind.

Per state order, masks are required indoors.
