The North Waldoboro Church of the Nazarene, 3008 Washington Road/Route 220 north, will host a special candlelight Christmas Eve concert by the Hyssongs Thursday, Dec. 24, at 7 p.m.

Dell, Susan and Richard Hyssong travel full-time as the award-winning Hyssongs. Their energetic ministry combines family vocal harmony, humor and brass instruments (trumpet and trombone) to delight audiences with their Christ-centered message, shared through the powerful medium of music.

The group has been singing together as a family for more than 19 years. In that time, the Hyssongs have received many accolades for their inspirational southern Gospel sound. The group was awarded the Singing News Fan Award for 2014 Favorite New Trio at the National Quartet Convention, Pigeon Forge, Tenn.

The Hyssongs perform at more than 250 events each year throughout the United States and Canada. They minister in churches, auditoriums and on Gospel singing cruises, as well as on television and radio.

For more information about the concert, call Pastor Mark Holden at 832-4462.
