In early December 2013
we conducted our first Neighborhood Christmas Banquet in place of our
traditional Christmas Social. Our neighbors in the communities
surrounding the church were invited to attend a bountiful turkey
dinner prepared by our ladies and served by our young people. The
program was a narrative of the redemption story traced through the
entire Bible, including creation, manˈs fall into sin, prophecies of
the coming Savior, His birth, death, resurrection and second
coming. The narrative was interspersed with the singing of Christmas
carols and the following selections by our ensemble...
Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus
And The Glory of the Lord (from Handel's Messiah)
Infant Holy, Infant Lowly
The Hallelujah Chorus (from Handel's Messiah)
The event was well
attended and we look forward to hosting a banquet again this year.
