Candle Fundraiser helps CCE and brings the Light of Christ to our homes!
Lighting a candle has long been a spiritual practice. We light a candle as a prayer of intention; to banish the darkness; to illuminate our souls. Now you can purchase candles to light in your own home and to give as gifts to others.

Each unscented candle is contained in an 8-oz. glass jar, handcrafted with pride by Heritage candle company in the USA, and bears our personalized label proclaiming: May the Light of Christ Shine Upon You. Proceeds will go toward our general fund, enabling ministries that reach people in our neighborhoods and around the world. Consider purchasing a candle for yourself, as a gift for friends, or to donate to our pastoral care ministries.
