Music Minstry Update

Andrew Schaeffer, Director of Music Ministries

Though we still have 5 weeks until 2018, with the glorious celebration of Christ the King Sunday this past Sunday we marked the end of the liturgical year.  Now, we can turn our focus to Advent and Christmas!

Strictly speaking, Christmas does not officially begin until the evening of December 24, though the celebration of Christmas will begin to blend into Advent beginning on December 10 when the Adult Choir will present the Cantata: “Come Rejoicing” at all three traditional services.  It will be a stirring combination of readings, hymns and other selections that I know you will treasure.

Then, on Sunday, December 17, when you’ll hear our new “Encore Choir” at 8:30 while all the Children’s choirs will sing music of the Advent/Christmas season at 11:00.  Since Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday, we’ll only have one morning worship service at 10:00 that morning which will feature beautiful organ music as well as selections offered by our youth Praise Band.  Those of you who heard them at worship on November 19 will surely realize what a treat that will be!
