Join us Saturday, December 9 at 2pm at the Maplewood Assisted Living Center in Canton (205 State Street Road)! The caroling time will be short and simple including a few traditional carols and a short message from Pastor Jamie followed by a time of fellowship with the residents.
This event is for everyone: families, singles, and couples of all ages. We want to bless the residents by bringing a Christmas service to them. Even if singing isn't your thing, come to fellowship with the residents!
And, kids, feel free to make homemade Christmas cards to give to residents!
We will have a holiday orchestra at CFC Madrid and CFC Potsdam for the next 3 Sundays: December 10, 17, and 24. The music is available on the website if you want to practice.
