The Lenora Pioneer Church Society invites you and your friends to a special service of worship service October 15 at 3 p.m. at the historic Lenora United Methodist Church located in rural Canton, Minn. We will lift up and celebrate the mission and ministry of small town and rural churches, who have much to offer in mission and ministry in our world today despite the challenges some face. The historic Lenora United Methodist Church represents the rich heritage of Christian ministry in rural SE Minnesota. Begun by Circuit Rider John Dyer in 1856, Lenora remains dedicated to the Good News of the Christian faith. On Sunday, October 15, people are invited to the old church to celebrate and give thanks for the ministries of small town and rural churches in our area. Persons in attendance will sing songs accompanied by Nancy Dahly on the pump organ and Rev. Mark Woodward will give a message titled “A Big Message in a Small Package.” People are invited to continue bringing health and hygiene items for hurricane relief through United Methodist committee on Relief (UMCOR). An offering will be received for the ongoing work and ministry of the historic church.
Also, an important announcement will be made about a very special musical presentation coming to Lenora on November 5 at 2 p.m. Curious? Stay tuned….
