Music Ministry Update

Though the colder weather is just now descending upon Oklahoma, your musical ensembles are already hard at work learning music for Advent and Christmas!  While you’ll receive a full schedule for the month of December soon, I want to highlight three special musical events that I know you’ll want to put on your calendar:

Sunday, December 10 |  8:30, 9:45 & 11:00 services
The Chancel Choir and brass quintet will present the cantata “Come Rejoicing” by Jonathan Willcocks.  This jubilant piece of music interweaves traditional scripture readings with familiar carol texts - some set to new, original music.

Sunday, December 17 at 3:00 pm
Our handbell choir will present their annual Christmas concert of familiar tunes of the season.  A reception will follow.

Wednesday, December 10
We’re trying something new in regards to our Christmas caroling.  Instead of holding it on Sunday after the handbell choir concert, we’ll gather on the Wednesday after for dinner in the CAC and head out to bring Christmas cheer to one of the nursing homes in the area.  We hope that this arrangement will allow for more participation and will give you something to do if you have antsy kids at home ready to expel Christmas energy!
