The traditional Hanging of the Greens, with festive bagpipe music, takes place at the First Congregational Church this Sunday, Dec. 3, during the 10 a.m. worship service.

In celebration of the start of the Advent season, worship also includes the lighting of the first Advent candle, the candle of hope.

The Celtic Cross Pipe and Drum Band will provide much of the music for the service and at the close of the worship will lead the congregation to the church’s newly renovated social hall.
