The public is invited to attend the non-denominational pioneer-style worship service that will be held as part of the Forks of the Wabash Pioneer Festival on Sunday, Sept. 29, at Hier's Park.

The service will be lead by Rev. Chris Hayden and the congregation of the Central Christian Church, Huntington. The 50-minute worship service will begin at 9 a.m. at the main stage and will feature old-fashioned preaching and with period music and hymns. The service will be held in a sheltered area in case of rain.

In addition to the Pioneer Festival worship service, the church will also hold a worship service at the home church, 500 MacGahan St. at 10 a.m. on Sunday.

Those attending the worship service must pay the festival admission fee. However, if they stay only for the worship service and leave the park before 10:30 a.m., they will receive a refund of the admission fee.

Any Huntington County church wishing to participate in future Pioneer Festival worship services should contact Worship Service Chairman Phyllis Renz at 356-6416.
