Reading will shine in the national spotlight on Christmas Eve and some lucky people got a sneak peek.

"One Christmas Story: People Rich in Spirit" will be airing at 11:30 p.m. on December 24 on CBS.

A special preview was held Monday night at the Miller Center at Reading Area Community College. Members of the Hope Lutheran Church in Reading are featured in the program.

The creators say the project captures the hope that exists in the city.
