21 Nov Conway First Baptist plans special light display
Opening night has been set for The Lights of Conway, previously the Christmas display at Tony Circle.
Several months ago, Tony Brighter announced that following his family’s decision to move, they would no longer be hosting their annual Christmas display. This was disappointing news as driving through Tony Circle has become a holiday tradition for thousands in the Conway community. Shortly after the announcement, a local church approached Tony in the hopes of finding a way to continue the holiday experience he and his family worked so hard to create.
Conway First Baptist recently announced that on Sunday, Dec. 4, the lights will come on for the very first time at their location, 1719 Robinson Ave. At the conclusion of the church’s children’s Christmas program, roughly 7 p.m., many will gather on the front lawn to witness as the lever drops and the month-long show begins.
Beginning Monday, Dec. 5, the lights will then be turned at 5:30 p.m. through Sunday, Jan. 1. CFBC would also like to extend an invitation to the entire community to join them on Christmas Eve at 4 or 6 p.m. or Christmas morning at 10:30 a.m. for their Celebration Worship.
In keeping with tradition, the church will continue to accept donations for local charities each week while the lights are on. This year, the church has chosen to partner with Renewal Ranch, Soaring Wings and Camp Champion.
The ministry staff of CFBC has also expressed its joy in being able to continue this project, as well as their desire to expand the light display over the next several years.
