The presents have all been opened, many people are basking in the calm of an extra day or two off from work, and the Christmas dinner has been eaten - although the leftovers may last until the new year.
Some people, though, aren’t that eager to let the Christmas spirit slip through their grasp so easily. For those who need one last dose of Christmas cheer, take note of these special worship services listed below.
Holy Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church will hold a traditional worship service at 10:30 a.m. Sunday. The church choir will perform the cantata “The Reason for the Season” during the service.
