As I did last year, I plan to list Christmas Eve services in this space. Christmas is coming up fast and I know most churches in York County are having services that Tuesday night.
My plan is to list them all here. Then we will link to it from other places and publicize it through social media and the like.
For that, I need all the churches and pastors reading this to send me your info. Send your info to firstname.lastname@example.org, or add it to the comments here.
Thanks in advance. Here is what we have so far:
