A local church is set to host a Christmas party at Lake Elsinore’s historic Aimee’s Castle, and the public is invited.

“Christmas at the Castle” is scheduled Dec. 21 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and features guided tours of the home, Christmas music, refreshments and a candlelight service that will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Tours will be offered in English and Spanish, and all are welcome, according to a news release from The Rock, which is hosting the free event and is part of the Foursquare church denomination founded by original castle owner and evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson.

In the late 1920s, McPherson commissioned architect Edwin Bickman to design the Moorish Revival castle above the lake's northeastern shore. The property has long been the subject of great interest and fascination due to its unique architecture and spiritual heritage.  

During the Dec. 21 event, parking will be available offsite at Realty Center Inc., 30713 Riverside Dr., Lake Elsinore, with complimentary shuttle service to and from the castle. For more information and to RSVP, visit www.christmasatthecastle.net or call 951-226-7914.

Carl, I hope they're able to get you up there. Sounds like the candlelight service might do you some good. Relax my friend.

How do your RSvP??

Sandee, there is no way to RSVP until someone at foursquare gets on the ball and provides a correct phone number. Bd, you always know what's best for everyone else, I've noticed.

Hi Carl, I'm handling publicity for this event. I am sorry you were frustrated today - the church office was obviously closed when you called but the number allows you to leave a message and/or RSVP if you want to. If you leave a number someone will call you back and answer any questions. The website number is the same as the one in the article - apparently the area code was wrong. It has been corrected. Blessings!

Tridie, I am sorry for my previous comment. It was frustration which got the best of me. Thank you for posting.
Bd December 03, 2013 at 12:13 AM
Carl, please accept my apology. This is a stressful time of the year and people get worked up. There was no need for my comment.
VVV December 03, 2013 at 12:31 AM
No problem, Bd. Merry Christmas.

I also have tried to RSVP and left my number. I will continue to call. This event is awesome!

Tried to call, no answer, no answering machine either. If the phone number is incorrect, please post the correct number.
