Riley Creek Carol Sing
Riley Creek United Methodist Church invites the community to its forty-seventh annual Christmas Carol Sing on Sunday, December 2, at 7:30 p.m. Like an old-fashioned songfest around the piano, the program will feature congregational singing of many traditional carols, as well as readings from Scripture about Jesus’ birth, special performances by the Pandora United Methodist Church Choir, Ottawa Saints Peter and Paul Choir, other musicians, and a candle lighting ceremony. Since 1972 this special service in a little church built by pioneers has provided an uplifting way to get into the Christmas spirit.
The congregation will also be giving you a look at the building addition which is in progress. The addition will include restrooms, a kitchenette, and a fellowship hall when completed. This is a time of much excitement at the little country church in the bend of the Riley Creek. Come check it out. Sunday morning worship is at 11:15 AM.
The church is located southeast of Ottawa and northwest of Pandora at the intersection of Putnam County Roads M and 7-L (7102 County Road M, Ottawa OH 45875), across from Putnam Stone Co. The Rev. Duane Kemerley is pastor.
