Music Sunday – December 11

9:00 Worship – “Open Mic”

Join us for a festive, spirit-filled morning of music! Not only will we hear from the band, but members of our congregation, and Govans community members will share with us songs of the season, spoken-word and more. 

11:00 Worship – Carols and Lullabies

The chancel choir will present a truly unique piece of music titled “Carols and Lullabies: Christmas in the Southwest” by composer Conrad Susa, with special musicians Erin Baker on harp, Thomas Potts on guitar, and Johnny Barker on the marimba. Susa wrote this piece when he was commissioned to write an accompanying piece to Britten’s Ceremony of Carols, and was suggested by Gary Holt to write a piece of Christmas music that he sang as a young boy. Hear the choir sing Christmas carols from various regions of the world in these languages and dialects: Biscayan, Puerto Rican, Spanish, Catalonian, and Andalusian.

Christmas Eve Services – December 24

4:30 p.m. Christmas Pageant

Come all ye faithful and experience the joy of the Christmas season with “Do Not Be Afraid,” an inspired children’s pageant for kids and families which retells the Christmas story. Sing and rejoice with carols, ending with “Silent Night” accompanied by guitar and candlelight.

9:00 p.m. Lessons and Carols

This year we are re-imagining the service of Lessons and Carols. Our choir will provide beautiful music and lead us in medleys of Christmas hymns. We will begin by singing Silent Night to candlelight before moving into the reading of the gospel Christmas stories interspersed with beloved music. We will end as the choir leads us out to “Go Tell it on the Mountain”!
