Rhema has turned on their Christmas lights for the holiday season.

FOX23 caught up with James Shelby while he had a minute to breathe and take in the lights.

"That's what it's all about," said Shelby.

Up until Wednesday, he and other church members were busy getting the lights assembled. But the light displays don't just happen. It takes a 15-man crew that starts planning the light designs in August.

"There's 46,000 lights on this tree and there's 72,000 lights on the bridge," Shelby said.

This is the 31st year of the lights display at Rhema and it features more than 2 million lights.

The lights will be on from 5:30 to 11:30 p.m. nightly until New Year's Day.

The lights decorate the 110-acre Rhema campus, at 1025 West Kenosha in Broken Arrow. The display includes a gingerbread family, horses and cowboys, a Noah's ark and Santa's sleigh. There will also be a 50-figure Nativity scene.

Admission to Rhema's Christmas lights extravaganza is free, but visitors can donate online at rhema.org or text their gifts. Text "LIGHTS AMOUNT" to 28950 and follow the prompts.

That scumbag Hagin sure gets a lot of free publicity. It helps him to buy fuel at $6 a gallon for his fancy jet plane which uses about a thousand dollars worth an hour as he zips around the country begging for even more filthy lucre.
