Kickoff Advent

All are welcome to attend Red Cliff Community Church's old-fashioned hymn-sing and post-Thanksgiving potluck, and to help light the Advent yule log candle ringing in the first Sunday of Advent. Starting at 10:30 a.m., Red Cliff's renowned pianist Bob Trezise will take requests and play favorite hymns and carols of Thanksgiving and Christmas. The Advent Log, donated by Ted Warren over 40 years ago, milled via historic Warren Brothers Sawmill is used instead of a wreath every year to count down the Sundays of the Christmas Season. Arrive as early as 9 a.m. to partake of hot drinks, breakfast snacks and help decorate and hang the greens. After the hymn sing, enjoy food and fellowship. The event goes until 12:30 p.m. If you like, bring a favorite seasonal treat or Thanksgiving leftovers to share. Call 970-331-9752for mor information.
