Church Christmas Services
Each December, we update our “CHURCH SERVICES” page to reflect what the five local Christian churches will be doing for Christmas Day, as well as listing any special programs.
(Basic information on weekly services can be found all year long under our “COMMUNITY RESOURCES” Link found in the top MENU BAR of the front page of the Lyons Recorder.)
The River Church will be having its LIVE Nativity scene again this year, but with lighter COVID-restrictions, they will allow people to get out of their cars and view the scene up close.
The Lyons Community Church will be focusing on “the Inn,” with special programs. As well as, having a “musical Sunday,” and a “Children’s Pageant.”
