United Community Church invites the public to its unique Christmas Eve service at 6 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 24, which features a dramatic candlelight service titled “The Light of the World.” A special concert by Hawaiian entertainer Mark Yamanaka will follow. The church is at 1110 Kinoole St. in Hilo, at the corner of Kinoole and Mohouli streets.
Actors,— along with narrators and singers of all ages — will bring to life on stage the story of the coming of the Christ child.
“This unique drama will present how Jesus entered the world as the great hope, as the source of life that pierces the world’s darkness,” explained Pastor Merle Lai.
“Jesus came into the world to reveal the love, the life and the light of God into the darkness,” she said.
Yamanaka won four Na Hoku Hanohano awards in 2011: the Album of the Year, Most Promising Artist, Male Vocalist of the Year and Song of the Year.
