At our normal worship times on December 15, we will hear readings of the Advent and Christmas season, along with carol singing and music offered by our Chancel Choir, Bell Choir, Children’s Choir, Youth Ensemble and Strings & Brass Ensemble, along with our beautiful pipe organ.

Between services, a Norwegian pastor studying at Luther Seminary will offer stories about the celebration of Christmas in her native country. And with her two children, she will sing traditional carols of Christmas.

It is also the day to bring your Christmas items for Loaves & Fishes, and ZOOM House in Minneapolis. Mittens and hats for the children’s tree are need by Sunday, Dec. 22.
