Christmas Choir Cantata - Christmas Presence

Sunday, December 23, 2018  |  6:00 pm


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.
