The Abbotsford Evangelical Free Church will be holding its annual Mission Celebration on Saturday, September 23, at the church.

Several visiting missionaries will display interesting information about their organization and the role they play in it. Doors open at 5 p.m. for visiting and interaction time, followed by a light dinner at 6:30 p.m. and a keynote address at 7:30 p.m.

Mark Rieland, director of Oak Forest Center, in Fredric, WI, will be presenting the keynote address Saturday night and another message/sermon on Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
