We have a great opportunity for your children to be a part of a children’s choir for the Lessons and Carols Concert on December 15th! Any child who is in preschool (at least 3 years old) through 5th grade is invited to join.
The main song the children will be singing is an original piece written by our own Dan Raymond called “Shepherd’s Song”. We will also be doing motions and sign language to the song. Children who are in kindergarten through 5th grade are also invited to join the adult choir singing “Silent Night” during the last verse of “Peace, Peace”. Please see the links below for the songs.
The rehearsals will mostly take place during the Sunday School time. we do encourage you to practice with your child(dren) at home as well. we never expect perfection, but it will be most helpful for your child(ren) to feel prepared the day of the concert if they have all the lyrics and signs memorized.
Be sure to invite friends, family, and anyone you think would benefit from hearing the beautiful message of Jesus coming to dwell among us. (That would be anyone!)

Tuesday, December 24th – Candlelit Family Christmas Eve Service at 4:00 pm. This is an hour-long service designed especially for families. Come a few minutes early if your child (of any age!) would like to dress up as a sheep, shepherd, or angel as they are led to reenact the story of Jesus’ birth during the service. Kids will be called up when it’s time to sing “Shepherds’ Song” during the service and we will conclude with a candlelit singing of “Silent Night.”
