TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - The light switch was turned on Sunday night at Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler for their first Christmas tree lighting.

In June, pastor Michael Gossett asked why not host something for all of Tyler to enjoy and that’s when the planning began.

The tree stands 47-feet tall and was sewn together in Maryland and assembled in East Texas.

Gossett said this event is important because Jesus came to be the light of the world

The event also local food trucks, inflatables, a live nativity scene, and worship music.

The community is invited to stop by to view the tree and take pictures throughout the Christmas season.
