2019 Christmas Cantata Dec. 8, at 5:00pm. The chancel choir will present a Christmas musical on Sunday, December 8, at 5:00 pm in the church sanctuary. The choir will perform “Joy Has Dawned, a Christmas Celebration” by Lloyd Larson. Tommy Ginn is director of the Chancel choir. The Christmas story will be narrated by Bill and Lynne Johnson. Adult and children church members will portray the nativity scene. The Sylva Bells, a community hand bell choir, under the direction of Lori Merservey, will play holiday selections prior to the concert.
