Dazzling light display at Christ’s Church

Wednesday, January 2, 2019 by wanda kalusky Special to The Press in Local News

During the 2018 Christmas season, Christ’s Church at Lowhill was bursting with holiday cheer with its awesome indoor Lowhill Lights of Wonder show.

The annual light display was programmed by Jason Ruhe of Allentown.

Almost 700 people visited the church to see the display.

Many families and friends have made the light show a yearly tradition for the past five years.

Visitors were amazed at how the lights and music are synchronized into such a beautiful show.

In addition to the Lowhill Lights of Wonder, the church welcomed the community to a Breakfast with Santa, prepared by the church kitchen crew, on Dec. 15, 2018.
