Hanging of the Greens

The public is invited to the 2022 “Hanging of the Greens” service at Trinity Church in Lewisburg on the first Sunday in Advent, Nov. 27, at 7 p.m. This dramatic service begins in silence and darkness as those in attendance await the “Light of Christ” symbolizing Christ’s coming into a world of darkness 2,000 years ago and into the darkness of our hearts today. Once the Christ Candle is in place, there are readings explaining the history of all of our favorite symbols of Christmas. By the end of the service, the sanctuary is dressed in its Christmas finery and hearts are prepared to celebrate the true meaning of the season. The “Hanging of the Greens” is a family event with opportunities during the service for children to come forward to help decorate the tree and participate in the lighting of the Advent Candle. The service, which lasts approximately one hour, will be preceded by a Soup and Sandwich Supper in the multi-purpose room from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The meal will be provided by the Trinity Kitchen Ladies in cooperation with The Brick Rhod Bistro and The Burg Deli. Pre-service music will be provided by well-known local musician Eric Loy in the church sanctuary from 6:30-7 p.m. The church is located directly across Commerce Street (Ohio 503) from Tri-County North Schools. Parking is available on both the Commerce Street side and the Main Street side of the building with the multi-purpose building located on the west side. Additional parking is available on the street or in the school parking lot. Everyone is welcome. Dress is casual. There is no charge but donations will be gladly accepted to cover the costs of the evening.
