This Sunday, Nov. 10, starting at 6:30 p.m., New Alexandria United Methodist Church will host its last Hymn Sing for 2019.

• The evening centers on New Alexandria Community Choir singing of audience-selected hymns. The program is completed with special music by various vocalists, including guest soloist Bill Martz from Ligonier. Pianist for the night will be the Rev. Rosalyn Werner.

Debbie Resslar, Worship Team representative and choir director, noted, “All are welcome to join us for a night of great music — immediately followed by refreshments and desserts served in our church social hall. The New Alexandria United Methodist Church is located on 106 Washington St. We look forward to seeing you.”

• The New Alexandria Community Choir will perform the cantata “Behold a Savior!” by Jay Rouse and Rose Aspinall during December in place of a monthly hymn sing.
