Bear Creek churches plan Christmas concert

The combined choirs of Trinity and Grace Lutheran churches, Bear Creek, will commence the 2017 Advent Season with their much-anticipated annual Christmas concert at 4 p.m. on Dec. 2.

The event, being held at Trinity Lutheran Church, E8010 State Highway 22, Bear Creek, is open to the public.

Celebrating their 22nd year under the direction of Ann Behnke and with assistance from Alan Marquardt and Tammy Roland, the concert promises to be one of the best yet as the group performs a wide variety of seasonal music including spirituals, gospel songs, contemporary Advent choral arrangements, and favorite Christmas carols and hymns. Marelyn Krueger will be the accompanist on organ and piano along with the brass ensemble.

Fellowship and refreshments will follow in the church basement, which has handicap accessibility. A free will offering will be taken.
