“Christmas is a time of good tidings and great joy (Luke 2:10),” said Mrs. Wolfe.  “It is a time when we pause to remember Jesus Christ, ‘the Mighty God, the Prince of Peace’ (Isaiah 9:6).  It is a time when we praise His holy name, saying ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men’ (Luke 2:14). During this sacred time, we invite everyone in the greater Chattanooga area to rejoice with us in celebrating the greatest story ever told.”
