Ring in the holidays with a community sing-along. The musical group The Spirit Seekers will host their second annual nondenominational Christmas sing-along at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15, at St. Anthony’s Church in Superior, 4315 E. Third St.
The list of songs include both religious and secular tunes, from “Winter Wonderland," to “Silver Bells,” to “Away in a Manger.” The event will conclude with a candlelight rendition of “Silent Night” followed by refreshments.
The free, family event is meant to help ease holiday stress while promoting community.
“In a time when people are divided and there’s so much negativity, just to create a more positive, something everyone can agree on,” said Jane Moe, one of the Spirit Seeker singers.
According to the Mayo Clinic, seeking out community, religious or social events can lift holiday spirits and help relieve the stress of the season.
Last year’s inaugural sing-along had a good turnout, with the majority being residents, not congregation members.
“I thought it sounded great,” Moe said. “The more voices, the better, in my opinion.”
It was intended to provide a feel-good, free event for families in Superior and, Moe said, it delivered. The sing-along is back by popular demand.
“We’ve already had people who have called the church asking if we’re doing it again,” she said. “I think that the interest is there.”
Everyone in the Twin Ports is invited to lift their voices together and get into the Christmas spirit. Lyrics will be provided, as will refreshments. No singing experience required.
“We’d just love to have them join us,” Moe said. “To encourage people to come together as a community.”
