Old Fashioned Hymn Sings and Concerts

On the first Sunday of every month, beginning in May and continuing through December, an old fashioned community Hymn Sing is held inside The Old Rugged Cross Church at 6:00 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m. for anyone interested in a tour.

On the third Sunday of each month, beginning in May and continuing through November, a concert is held at 3:00 pm, with a Hymn Sing at 6:00 p.m. Concerts are given by talented musicians who are willing to share their time and talent to help raise funds for the on-going maintenance of The Old Rugged Cross Church.

Although concerts for 2022 are not yet scheduled, the list of dates and times of scheduled events for 2022 are as follows:

All concerts and hymn sings are free to the public. However, a free-will offering will be taken at each event.
