BACH Into Advent - Advent Workshop and Dinner; Christmas Oratorio

Make Plans to join us for BACH INTO ADVENT an evening to usher in the Advent season!

Our first event of the Advent season will be a creative evening for ALL ages as we combine our traditional Advent Wreath-making Workshop and Dinner with the Chancel Choir Concert: Christmas Oratorio by J.S. Bach on Sunday, December 3. The Advent Wreath Workshop begins at 4 p.m. in McWhirter Hall, and the Choir Concert will be at 5 p.m. in the Sanctuary. This piece tells the story of Christmas from the birth in the manger to the shepherds’ arrival in Bethlehem to greet the Christ child.

The Advent Wreath Workshop will include the makings for our church family to prepare an Advent wreath to help all of us prepare for the coming of Jesus into our world. Each family is encouraged to bring greenery for decorating the wreaths and Styrofoam wreath forms from past years. The wreath making will conclude in an Advent worship time, celebrating the 1st Sunday of Advent! Resources and devotional materials will be available for church families to observe lighting the Advent wreath candles in their homes during the Advent season. 

The catered meal will begin at 5:30 p.m., following the making of the Advent wreaths for those families who do not attend the choir concert and will also be available following the concert. Reservations for the meal will be required in order to have enough for all. Please register below by November 27 at noon.
