Posted in All Faith & Worship

The wood stove will crackle with heat, the kerosene lamps will flicker with light in the windows, the old, wooden floor will creak when people come through the heavy, oak doors at the historic Lenora United Methodist Church for special Christmas events this season. The old 1856 Lenora Church building on the National Register of Historic Places is being readied for the Advent and Christmas season. People from near and far will want to enjoy the festive opportunities at this rustic, pioneer church in rural Fillmore County.

Here’s what’s happening:

•December 21 at 3 p.m. Christmas worship service featuring the music of 9 year old Autumn Frederick. The theme for this afternoon service will be: “A Strange Way to Save the World...Why Didn’t God Send a Super Hero?” This service is designed for families with children and senior citizens who do not like to drive at night...

•December 22 at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Worship service “O Holy Night.” The story of one of the best known Christmas anthems of all time. Special music from Sarah on violin and Barbie on the keyboard. Mr. Bart Seebach will be singing “O Holy Night.”

•December 23 at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Worship theme: “Merry Christmas...or Happy Holidays.” Special music: Gay Stockdale and Roger Svebakken from Cherry Grove, Minn.

Everyone is invited and welcome to come to the historic Lenora United Methodist Church during the Advent and Christmas season. The church is located off of Fillmore County Road 23 near Canton, Minn. People are encouraged to bring non-perishable food for local Fillmore County Food shelves. A free-will offering will be received for the ongoing work and ministry at Lenora. Following all of the services refreshments, Christmas treats, hot coffee and apple cider will be served at the next door Lenora Fellowship House...Everyone is welcome to stop by for some good fellowship in the Spirit of Christmas at Lenora.
