The Spokane Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will celebrate 75 years in the community with a unique Christmas Fireside on Sunday, Dec. 11, at 7 p.m., at the Spokane Stake Center (1620 E. 29th Ave.).

According to a press release, the Stake started “from humble beginnings” in 1947 and grew into a regional membership of more than 50,000 members.

The event will feature music by the Spokane Stake Choir, directed by Annie Ditto and accompanied by Aubrey Hanna. The congregation will enjoy a sing-a-long of Christmas songs and refreshments will be served.

Of special note will be the awarding of cash gifts of support to two local nonprofits: The Salvation Army and Teen & Kid Closet.

The program will also include remarks by Corps Sergeant Ian Robertson of the Salvation Army and Spokane Stake President Darryl L. Moseley.

A pre-event presentation of “Inland Northwest LDS Centennial” will also be offered at 5:30 p.m., including comments by filmmaker Lon Gibby who produced the documentary in 2006.

The film documents the first 100 years of Latter-day Saints in the region and will be available for viewing on the Friends of the Spokane Washington Stake Facebook page until Dec. 31.
