The annual Maple Grove United Methodist Church Toy Train Ministries display will be on Saturday, Nov. 6, in the Fellowship Hall from noon to 4 p.m.

The "ministries" are the undertaking of Northland resident Gerald Hepp.

"There will be operating and static displays as well as some hands-on for the young engineers," according to Hepp. "The Toy Train Ministry hopes you bring the family and see toy trains from grandpa's time or your child's first Christmas. We are bridging the ages with a common interest to enjoy happy memories associated with toy trains and the holidays of the past."

Maple Grove United Methodist Church is located at the southwest corner of Henderson Road and North High Street.

There is no charge for admission and there are no sales of trains or train equipment.
