About Lights Before Christmas

Started in 2021, in partnership with Impact Saginaw, Alpha Media, and Covenant HealthCare, the goal is to bring joy and light to hospitalized patients at Covenant. The community is welcome to join the 2023 Lights Before Christmas and make the holidays brighter for Covenant Kids! Every night at 6pm December 4-8, 2023, at the Covenant HealthCare parking lot located at 1000 Houghton Avenue in Saginaw, people will gather to shine our light using flashlights, glow foam tubes or anything that lights up, towards the kids’ windows at 6pm for two minutes. Free flashlights will be provided to the first 100 attendees each night by Impact Saginaw. A different musical act will be featured for entertainment, cookies, hot chocolate, and more.
