The 63rd annual Llano River Valley German Hymnfest, featuring songs of faith and inspiration used by immigrant families, will be held Sunday, September 22nd at 3 p.m. at the Hilda United Methodist Church.
The annual German Hymnfest is sponsored by four Methodist churches: Art United Methodist, Trinity United Methodist in Castell, Hilda United Methodist and First United Methodist, Mason. These churches were part of the original circuit that brought Methodism to the Llano River Valley.
The purpose of the event is to promote and preserve the German hymns that helped the early settlers sustain their Christian faith. While none of the participating churches presently conduct services in the German language, the songs are recalled and sung with enthusiasm! Songbooks of the hymns in German and English will be distributed. The Mason Community Men’s Choir will also lend its voice to this event.
Pastor Wade Powell and the Hilda congregation cordially invite you to come join in the singing and entertainment, staying afterwards to enjoy refreshments and fellowship. Willkommen!
