MANSFIELD—Once again ,the lanterns will be burning in the Pioneer Church on Tuesday, Dec. 10, 6:30 p.m., as churchgoers attend the annual caroling service at Mansfield’s restored log church.
Each year, the Mansfield Memories Committee sponsors this Christmas celebration reminiscent of the faith of the early settlers.
This service is the highlight of the Christmas season for many because of the uniqueness of the church and the simplicity of the service itself.
Join together with family and friends from Mansfield and beyond as we celebrate “The Reason for the Season” the birth of our Lord Jesus. Members of the Mansfield Mini-Mights 4-H club will again portray the nativity scene to some of the favorite Christmas carols.
The guest pastor will be Dick Kreider, who will officiate the evening service. Everyone is invited to attend in the social that will follow.
Directions to Mansfield’s historical district and this very special log church are as follows: From M-69 (about four miles east of Crystal Falls or about six miles west of Sagola) turn north onto the Mansfield Cut-off Road. Travel until you reach a fork in the road, at the mine pit, and turn left onto Stream Road. Another one-half mile and you will be at the church site.
No admission fee is charged at the church. However, a free will offering will be taken to help with the upkeep of the building.
