The Lenora Pioneer Church Society is happy to announce the Christmas schedule for the historic Lenora United Methodist Church located near Canton, Minnesota in rural Fillmore County.
Over the years people have come to worship and enjoy the beauty and wonder of Christmas at this historic pioneer church begun in 1856 by Circuit Rider Rev. John Dyer. This year the kerosene lamps will glow and the wood stove will radiate warmth on cold, dark December nights. There will be special music by a variety of musicians and Christmas carols played on the old pump organ. Rev. Mark Woodward will speak on a variety of Christmas themes that relate to Issac Watts’ inspiring Christmas carol, “Joy to the World.”
People are invited to bring non-perishable food for the local food shelf and a financial offering will be received for the ministry of the historic church.
This is the worship schedule for 2019:
- December 18 at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
- December 21 at 3 p.m.
- December 22 at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
In case of severe or dangerous winter driving weather, closing announcements will be made on local television stations. Always use good winter driving judgment. Everyone is invited and welcome at Lenora as we share together the joy and wonder of Christmas. Children are especially invited and each service will have a children’s moment.
The church is located near Canton on Fillmore county Road 23. (See location on Google Maps)
