Fayetteville First United Methodist Church (FFUMC) will host a night of candlelight to include a candlelight dinner and silent auction along with an annual candlelight concert on Sunday, Dec. 22. The concert is free to the community, and the dinner and auction proceeds benefit two local mission projects.

The evening begins with the candlelight dinner at 5 p.m. Dinner tickets are $20 and may be purchased at the church office through Dec. 16. The dinner will be catered by Carrabba’s Italian Grill and is available by advance purchase only.

Themed gift baskets will be open for bids at the silent auction which starts Sunday morning and opens again during the dinner until 6:15 p.m.

Each year the free candlelight concert features violinist Sonia Squires and pianist Rick Massengale.

This year, the concert also will feature soloists Alison Kirkland and Eric Lindsey, and Dr. Richard Bell of the Southern Crescent Symphony Orchestra conducting the Candlelight Orchestra. The concert begins at 6:30 p.m. The community is invited to attend this family event.
