Light Up Ninth

We love Christmas! LOVE IT! We start listening to Christmas music in October (Well, some of us listen to it all year long.) But, for some reason, we’ve never decorated the outside of our building for Christmas. What’s wrong with us?!? (We probably shouldn’t dig too deep into that question…)

Since we’re going to be decorating our building for Christmas, we thought, “Wouldn’t this be even more fun if we could drive down NW 9th Ave. and see every house lit up with Christmas lights?” So, we thought, why not put together a fun, friendly, neighborhood competition?

But, what would really motivate someone to participate? How about a generous donation of a 2-night stay at the “2 Landrise” house in Sunriver?! Yeah, that’s right! It’s a great house! (Even if you don’t win, you should go stay there sometime!) We’re also going to have a few other prizes for other top vote-getters!

Winners will be announced at our ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas Eve service, December 23rd at 6:00 pm, where we will also have a candlelight service along with free Christmas goodies.

There’s no cost to enter, just put up your Christmas lights!
