HURON — Community members are invited to the fifth annual Winter Worship Event, hosted by Connecting Cultures, on Friday, Feb. 9, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Huron Campus Center.

The event, which is free and open to the public, is an evening of fun, food, worship and fellowship.

Everyone is encouraged to join members of diverse cultures living in this community, sample food from different countries and meet new friends by playing “Getting to know you” BINGO with information squares specific to people who have immigrated to Huron recently and even generations ago.

New this year, attendees will enjoy family fun activities to learn about constellations from Friends of Maga Ta-Hohpi.

Connecting Cultures was formed in 2016 with a purpose of reaching out to those in need and learning about different cultures in our region.

Its mission is to connect with people to bring all the amazing cultures together as one by an exchange of ideas, stories and life.

The event will be held in Blackburn Hall on the second floor of the Campus Center.

A variety of Karen, Hispanic, Chuuk, European, Scandinavian and American food will be served, including tamales, chicken and rice, spring rolls, lo mein, flan, Asopeo de Pollo, kuchle, kuchen, American pies and more.

There will also be music from Karen, Hispanic, Chuuk, Norwegian and local musical groups, games, worship and fun. All are welcome!
