Majesty in a Manger
Sat, Dec 15 @ 5:00 PM
Sun, Dec 16 @ 9:30 AM
In many ways, there was nothing particularly special about the baby, or the birth. That poverty, that narrowly-averted scandal when Mary fell pregnant, that greeting party of lowly shepherds; none of it was worthy of a king – none of it was majestic; and yet the birth of Jesus was precisely that. Come and enjoy Messengers of Grace as they sing a selection of songs celebrating the coming of the Savior, Christ Jesus. Let us celebrate together in song and worship our Majesty in a manger.
Night of the Father's Love
Sun, Dec 16 @ 8:15 & 11:00 AM
The Chancel Choir and Orchestra will present Night of the Father’s Love by Pepper Choplin; directed by Curt Olson and narration by Nick, Broderson, Ben Sterling, and Margaret Wilson, with featured soloist, Jamieson McCaffity. All the mystery, the awe, and the palpable excitement of that holy night are imaginatively captured in a Christmas musical mosaic that will guide you through the Christmas story as though hearing it again for the first time. We pray Night of the Father’s Love will touch your heart and enrich your Christmas worship celebration.
Sat, Dec 29 @ 5:00 PM
Sun, Dec 30 @ 8:15, 9:30 & 11:00 AM
Join us for this special worship as we tell the Christmas story in scripture and song.
