Powers Church Annual Celebration of Christmas
Sunday, November 27, 2022
The annual Celebration of Christmas at the historic Powers Church will be held on Sunday, November 27 at 3:00 PM. The service will include a reading of the Christmas story in the King James version of the Bible. Those attending will sing Christmas carols, and enjoy specials from the musicians. The public is invited to attend and enjoy the service.
Several area musicians are participating in the service. Jerry Sonner, Susan Sonner, and Sally Mowry will greet visitors with Christmas carols played on dulcimers. Program director Kathy Aldrich and Bill SanGiacomo will read the Christmas story with participation in song from the congregation. Blake Stevenson will lead the congregation in singing, accompanied by his guitar.
Because there is no heat in the building, everyone is invited to dress warmly, bring a blanket or quilt, and enjoy stepping back over 100 years to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. Hot cider and cookies will be provided after the 30-minute service.
The Powers Church is a local historic site listed on The National Register of Historic Places. It was built in 1876 and contains original woodwork, wood stoves and 1880’s wallpaper. Kerosene lights provide the lighting.
The church is located eight miles east of Angola, just north of US20 on Old Road 1.
