Composed in the spirit of folk music, this cantata combines traditional sounds with more rustic elements, creating a blend that is fresh and pleasing. Popular American carols like Away in a Manger and O Little Town of Bethlehem dance with traditional spirituals such as Children, Go Where I Send Thee and Go, Tell It on the Mountain. Sacred Harp tunes are retooled for Advent and stand alongside new versions of Shaker hymns and Appalachian melodies. Thoughtful narration weaves the movements together in a meaningful tapestry of song and Scripture.

In this season of long nights, some of us grieve over what might have been. Once this was a special time, but now you may have lost a job, a cause, a loved one, or something else.

Sometimes, it’s difficult to feel our true feelings while others are celebrating happily, shopping, and opening gifts.

Worship with us as our praise band “Promise” leads us in worship with wonderful Christmas music. 

Our virtual worship service was recorded in the sanctuary similar our usual traditional candlelight service. This service involves times to actively participate (ring bell) with us from home, vacation, or your family gathering using the interactive kit available at the church office before Dec. 23rd.
