Weekend Essentials: Holiday Worship Edition
A run down of Christmas services around town.
This is the space in which I would normally bring you all of the happenings around town—and even a few that are just out of town, if they were interesting enough.
Strangely, though, our calendar is pretty empty this weekend. Its as if there's some big event tomorrow that happens only once a year and brings just about everything to a halt—maybe a holiday or something.
Coincidentally, Reading's churches have jam-packed calendars this weekend. So, instead of your regularly scheduled Weekend Essentials, we have brought you a listing of Christmas services in town.
