St. Stephen's United Church of Christ, 1569 W. Market St., West York, has announced two events.

Its annual Christmas Music celebration, Follow the Star, will be held at 6:45 p.m. Friday. Music will be featured by the Chancel Choir, String Ensemble, Bell Ringers, soloists and the congregation under the direction of Gerry Short, organist/choir director. A children's song and story time will also be held.

Then on Sunday, its new children's Bible study, On Eagle's Wings, will begin. The event, for 3- to 10-year-olds, will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. on the second Sunday monthly. Offerings of money and pet-related items will be accepted and donated to the local SPCA in order to deepen the children's understanding of the importance of helping those in need.
