Calling all singers!
St. Lorenz Lutheran Church is inviting all area residents to join the St. Lorenz Carol Choir in singing for the Frankenmuth Town Lighting Ceremony on Friday, November 27 at 6:30pm. Bring your family and friends - there is no experience needed, and any and all singers are welcome.
The choir will meet in the music room at St. Lorenz Church (lower level) at 5:30pm to rehearse familiar carols and hymns of the season. They will then travel by bus to River Place for the 6:30pm ceremony. This is a great opportunity to lend your voices in this most unique community celebration.

German Heritage Christmas Songfest on November 29
All are welcome to begin the Advent season with a one-hour German Heritage Christmas Songfest at 3pm on Sunday, November 29, 2015 at St. Lorenz Lutheran Church.
This year's program consists
entirely of traditional German carols and scripture readings of the Advent and Christmas seasons. Several of this
year's songs are from the Lieder-Perlen book, which was often used in area schools. Pre-service music will be offered by the St. Lorenz Brass Ensemble directed by Michael Keller. Organist Dr. Scott Hyslop will lead the Male Chorus and the hymn singing. A free-will offering will be gathered. After the service, the St. Lorenz church museum will be open to the public.
The Christmas Songfest has been organized by the Frankenmuth German Club annually since 1993. Last year, 225 persons attended from many parts of Michigan and beyond.
