Toledo church to hold early Advent service


For those having a hard time waiting until Christmas, Good Shepherd of the Deaf Lutheran Church, 5859 Elmer Dr. in Toledo, gets a jump on the Christian season of Advent with a worship service at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

Advent actually begins Dec. 2, the fourth Sunday before Christmas. At 6 p.m., the church will serve soup and salad.

Good Shepherd of the Deaf identifies itself as a community of both the deaf and the hearing.
