The Kids 4 Peace children will open with the singing of a couple of Christmas Carols and also lead a congregational sing-a-long. The Choir under the leadership of Pam Kintz will then present “Christmas Presence: A Gathering of Hope, Peace, and Love” by Pepper Choplin.
“From the pen of Pepper Choplin comes Christmas Presence, a musical telling of the Christmas story and its impact on our lives and the lives of those around us. From the energetic opener, The World Awaits Your Coming, to the reflective Still They Are Here, this work inspires us to dwell on the important and profound way that Christmas brings us together through the joy of Christ’s birth. Beautiful original melodies and thoughtful texts are paired with and inspired by favorite carols of old in a unique and creative way. The finale features an inspiring call to action: Go into the world to be a Christmas Presence, bringing hope, peace, and love to a world in need”.
The Christmas Cantata will be presented on Sunday evening, December 16th, starting at 7:00 p.m.
The Choir will then present the Cantata at Schmitt Woodland Hills on January 9th and Pine Valley on January 16th.
Please come out and hear this beautiful cantata. Make sure to invite your friends, family and neighbors. Remember to come early as the sanctuary fills up fast. We will have child care available as well that night.
A Verse for You
Do not hate a fellow Israelite in your heart. Rebuke your neighbor frankly so you will not share in their guilt. Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.
