Christmas Window in Downtown Savannah 2011

Beautiful old Savannah churches open doors for Christmas Eve (December 24, 2011) worship, candlelight service, and/or caroling.

From all of us at The Presidents’ Quarters Inn in downtown Savannah, Georgia USA, we wish you the merriest Christmas filled with Peace on Earth and Goodwill to Men, especially in this Holy Season.

Trinity United Methodist Church on Telfair Square.  ** We saw where volunteers are needed for Christmas Day Breakfast for downtown Savannah’s homeless community.  The free breakfast will be served from 7 am until 10 am on Christmas morning.  At 10:00, gather in the sanctuary for the singing of traditional Carols and Hymns.  To volunteer, call the church office at 912-233-4766.
