On Sunday, December 17, at 5:00 pm, we’ll be pulling out all the bells and whistles (literally!) for our parish’s annual holiday concert, “Wondrous Night.” The concert is an opportunity to showcase our choirs of all ages! If you’ve never attended “Wondrous Night” before, you won’t want to miss this year’s performance!
The first portion of the concert will feature sacred songs for the Advent/ Christmas Season. At the center of the concert, a costumed group of our children will portray a Living Nativity Scene (a great photo op!), facilitated by the Office of Family Ministry. The third part of the concert features a community sing-a-long of favorite secular Christmas songs. To really enter into the fun, be sure to bring your own jingle bells, Santa hats, reindeer antlers, light-up Rudolph noses, or any other fun holiday props. During some of the songs, we’ll invite the children to come to the center and dance along with the song leaders. If you’d like to reserve a place in the “12 Daze of Christmas” extravaganza, we’ll post a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board so that you can reserve your spot!
In the spirit of the season, extend an invitation to your families, friends and neighbors to this unique and fanciful festival of fun! (We’ve even heard that we’ll have a visit by St. Nicholas, himself!) The evening performance will be approximately an hour and a half long with an after-concert reception hosted by members of the Worship Commission.
Please bring a plate of your favorite Christmas cookies to share after the concert. Drop them off in the Bethany Room before the concert. The cookies should not have any frosting on them (no cupcakes).
