The annual Christmas Service is non-denominational, all ages are welcome. This historic Swedish Lutheran Church building was completed in 1902. The setting gives one a feeling of long standing tradition and a glimpse into how families worshiped over a century ago. It may be worth noting that the Spruce Hill Church has no indoor plumbing.
