Christmas Presence - A Gathering of Hope, Peace, and Love

Christmas Choir Cantata
December 23, 2018
6:00 pm
Free
Childcare provided

The demands of the season battles for our attention, our time, and our focus. However, the very thing that brings us together at Christmas demands that we are present to reflect and moved by Christ's birth. In this work, the concept of being present weaves throughout the music and narration and presents a challenge to experience Christmas in God's presence and the presence of those around us. (from the publisher of Christmas Presence)

 The CBC choir presents Christmas Presence, December 23 at 6:00 pm. Join us for an evening focused on Christ. 

Check out all of our Christmas events.


 


Merry Christmas 2018!

Posted by Alan on November 27, 2018

At this time of the year, we remember and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Celebrate with us as we share the story of Christmas and proclaim the hope God provided for us through Christ!
