The First Baptist Church in cooperation with the First Congregational and First Reformed Churches of Buffalo Center will present a celebration of winter and Christmas seasons in a Community Hymnsing on Sunday. The event will take place at 7pm at the First Congregational Church of Buffalo Center. It is an annual tradition that gathers men, women, boys, and girls from several area churches to sing and praise.
The event will be led for the final time by Pastor Donna Steven who is retiring after this year. The group has named a new coordinator and some changes are ahead for future hymnsings.
Officials said in a statement that the group will be taking an offering for the North Iowa Food for Families food pantry and organizers will hold a fellowship time in the basement of the First Reformed Church in Buffalo Center after the hymnsing is completed.
