Mansfield caroling service on Tuesday

MANSFIELD  — Once again the lanterns will be burning in the Pioneer Church at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday as the 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 with family and friends from Mansfield and beyond to celebrate “The Reason for the Season,” the birth of Jesus.

The guest pastor will be the Rev. Ryan Flunker of Sagola’s Grace Presbyterian Church, who will officiate the evening service.

Everyone is invited to attend and to join in the social that will follow.

To get to Mansfield’s historical district and the log church: From M-69 about 4 miles east of Crystal Falls or about 6 miles west of Sagola, turn north onto the Mansfield Cut-off Road. Go until the fork in the road at the mine pit and turn left onto Stream Road. It is about another half-mile 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.

Also, a reminder that Mansfield Township will host its annual Christmas Program beginning at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 16, at the township hall.
