Christmas Tree Lighting

Join us for our annual Christmas Tree Lighting celebration at Shepherd Church, held in the courtyard plaza at our Porter Ranch campus.  This year’s event features a Christmas Tree that stands 55-feet tall and is adorned with 11,600 festive lights and 635 boughs that is sure to light up the northern skies of the San Fernando Valley! Bring your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors to experience a night that will brighten the eyes of children and gladden the hearts of young and old alike!

Don’t forget to bring your lawn chairs so you can sit and stay awhile, and join our choir as we sing timeless Christmas Carol favorites, and listen to Pastor Dudley read the Christmas Story. We’ve got free popcorn and hot cocoa too, a tasty duo treat that is sure to keep your tummy full throughout the entire evening. Pillars Café will also be open during the event, so please check out a variety of items for purchase, including coffee, teas, cold beverages, snacks, salads, and sandwiches.
