The service will feature music and carol singing led by Jill Herringshaw and a Christmas reading by Mark Herringshaw.

There will also be a special time for kids, a Christmas Eve reflection by Pastor Steve Eng and carols by candlelight. Following the service, people are welcome to join other worshipers for dinner at Arrowwood’s Lake Café.

J. Herringshaw’s passion is to bring healing and restoration through worship and the arts as a singer, songwriter and worship leader.

Her song For God so Loved was released on Lifescapes’ worship CD in 2006, distributed nationally at Target stores. She also co-composed two songs for a Lifescapes children’s CD in 2007 and released a CD in 2006, Mary, Mother of All Joys, depicting the life of Jesus through Mary’s eyes.

M. Herringshaw serves as Osakis studio manager and on-air announcer for Praise FM. He also serves as an adjunct faculty member in Northern Seminary’s doctor of ministry program and as a coach and consultant with 3D Ministries, a network of churches and church plants from a variety of denominations.
