Dr. Tim Bruster, Senior Pastor

Dear Friends,

Do you remember how our Christmas Festival was iced out the second Sunday of Advent? Do you remember our Advent theme, “Christmas Inside Out?” Do you remember that on the final Sunday in Advent we looked at Christmas “Outside the Holidays?” The good news of Christmas cannot be held inside of a part of the year called “the holidays,” rather the coming of Jesus that we celebrate at Christmas is both good news and a challenging message around which we order our lives outside the holidays.

 Featuring Choral Union accompanied by a Full Orchestra

Good news – the ice storm didn’t ruin your opportunity to enjoy a beautiful morning of music with a full orchestra – it just delayed it! Plan NOW to bring your family and friends to hear Randol Bass’s sparkling “Gloria,” J.S. Bach’s “Dona Nobis Pacem,” and the celebrated carols of John Rutter.
