12/01/11 The Antiquarian & Historical Society of Culver is teaming up with several local churches for a “hands-on” historic tour of several of the community’s places of worship, with a holiday-themed Advent/Christmas slant to the event.
On Sunday, Dec. 4, starting at 2 p.m., a bus-driven tour will start outside Wesley United Methodist Church on School Street. Attendees will enter each of several Culver church buildings for a brief look at the architecture of, and talk about the history of, that particular church, primarily led by Jeff Kenney of the AHS.
Before leaving each church building, those in attendance may take part in singing a short Christmas carol.
The event will culminate at Wesley church, where refreshments will accompany a short concert and prayer service featuring music from St. Mary of the Lake Catholic Church and Wesley itself, with virtuoso organist Ron McMahon providing primary accompaniment. The concert portion of the event is slated to begin at 4 p.m., for those who would like to attend only that program and not the entire tour. Both tour and concert are free and open to the public.
