The “Christmas Story”isn’t just a “story.”  It is redeeming love come to earth in Jesus Christ our Savior.  Over the years, musicians have tried to celebrate and capture this message of God’s saving grace come to earth as a babe.  Our church “Candelight Cantata” has been celebrating Christmas in song since 1920.  It began in our church as a town musical event, with standing room only crowds in the church on Broadway and Holly Avenues.

It has continued over the years as we have presented various cantatas, concerts, and oratorios such as Handel’s Messiah.  It has been a tradition to end with a candelight recessional to “Silent Night.”

This year we present a “Concert of Carols” to inspire you, to draw you closer, to know Jesus who came to earth to save us from our sins and provide a way to God.  Celebrate with us this night in this 83 year old tradition, as we use music to proclaim, “Joy to the World, the Lord is Come!”
