PANDORA - Riley Creek United Methodist Church invites the community to its forty-first annual Christmas Carol Sing on Sunday, Dec. 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 and Ottawa Sts. Peter and Paul choirs, 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 church is located southeast of Ottawa and northwest of Pandora at the intersection of Putnam Co. Roads M and 7-L, across from Putnam Stone Co. The Rev. Duane Kemerley is the pastor.
