    “Our first Carols by Candlelight was on Dec. 24, 1950 and was conducted by then choirmaster Erich Bredehoeft,” said Katie Priskorn, church office manager and assistant music director. “Several times the senior choir appeared on the Channel 4 TV program ‘Church at the Crossroads’. The sanctuary is always full and we advise people to get there early to guarantee getting a good seat.”
