Cornwall church decks the halls this Sunday

CORNWALL — The spirit of the season will come to Cornwall this Sunday, Nov. 30, when the Cornwall Congregational Church hosts a special 3 p.m. Advent celebration.
Attendees will be welcome to deck the church with a traditional “Hanging of the Greens,” the ceremony that readies the sanctuary for Advent, the four weeks before Christmas when Christians are called to prepare themselves spiritually for the coming of Jesus.
Charles Callahan, the Cornwall Church organist and choir director, will present a recital of organ music. Renowned soprano Anneliese von Goerken had be scheduled to sing at this event, but, unfortunately had to withdraw because of health issues in her family.
People of all faiths — or none at all — are welcome at this event. The Rev. Dr. Mary Kay Schueneman, pastor of the Cornwall Church, will weave historical background about Advent traditions into the program, and there will be a special free-will offering taken for the Warming Shelter at the Charter House in Middlebury.
The Cornwall Congregational Church is in the Cornwall town center near the intersection of Routes 30 and 74.
For more information, call 802-462-3138.
