WAYNESBORO, Pa. - More than 100 people filled the pews in Harbaugh Reformed Church on Sunday for the Waynesboro Historical Society's annual Christmas Candlelight Service.
"This is as many as we've ever had," event organizer Mary Jane Weagly said. "People come from all over the area."
With nearly every seat filled, several people stood in the back of the sanctuary while the rector of Waynesboro's St. Mary's Episcopal Church delivered a message and a bell choir from Rouzerville United Methodist Church led hymns and carols.
The original Harbaugh Reformed Church opened in 1847 on the property southeast of Waynesboro, but the congregation outgrew the structure and built a new church in 1892. Named in honor of Dr. Henry Harbaugh, the church has been owned by the historical society since 1983 and hosts special events.
