If that isn’t enough to warm up the house for your family, then about 10:45 for the 13th consecutive year in a row, the Firm Foundation choir will provide the singing for 2 Christmas classics. It all promises to be a festive holiday Saturday on A Firm Foundation with N. W. Ohio’s most trusted hosts, Rick and Jackie, and they want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
