Like carols? Kierch hosts sing-along

A community carol sing-along will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8 at historic Sant Peter’s Kierch, North Union and High streets Middletown.


Among the carols that will be sung by candlelight: “Joy to the World,’’ “We Three Kings’’ and “Silent Night.’’


Hot chocolate and cookies will be served afterward.


The Kierch, built in 1767, is on the National Register of Historic Structures. It is the oldest standing Lutheran church in Dauphin County.

If you go, you should dress warmly, for the Kierch has no heat.
