Peace Candle

Peace Candle

The candle in our Sanctuary is a peace candle.  The peace candle movement began in 1985 when a woman in Russia asked a pastor visiting from the United States to "do something for world peace."  With the small donation she made, that pastor bought the first votive candle.  In July of 2000, First Presbyterian received a candle from a church in New York state.  Visitors from other churches, are encouraged to take a candle home for your congregation.  Friends and visitors at First Presbyterian visiting other congregations are encouraged to take a candle as a gift.  Candles and an information sheet are available at the Welcome Center in the Great Room.
