GOLDEN HILL — On Sunday at 2 pm St John’s United Methodist Church will host an Old Fashioned Christmas Concert in Golden Hill. St John’s has been holding regular Sunday services since 1789 and will be celebrating 230 of regular service in 2019. Jerry Jones, international male vocalist and songwriter and his wife, Jeannie, will perform the old classic, traditional Christmas music that has filled our hearts and homes for decades. This is an extra special performance for the Joneses as they will be moving to Florida at the end of the year making this one of their final performances before moving.

Jerry Jones and his wife, Jeannie, are both certified Lay Ministers. They have devoted their lives to serving the Lord through their music ministry, countless charities, and Jeannie’s calling to be involved with women’s ministries, leading her to form “God’s Girls” along with her friend Grace Kelly. When in their home area and not scheduled to minister for another service they attend The Ark Church, Seaford, Del.
