Christmas Cantata 2019: The recap!
We invited people to “Come to the Manger” — and they came in droves!
It was wonderful to see so many old friends and new faces in the pews as we spent a night filled with song, celebration and fellowship. After welcoming the crowd and kicking things off with a medley of Christmas favourites, our children performed “Don’t Forget Jesus,” in which a nativity scene comes to life — only to discover the baby had gone missing. They decide to reenact the story to get their saviour back — and it worked!
After the Sunday school choir performed “It’s Christmas” and “Go Tell It On The Mountain,” it was time for the adults to take the stage again — and they brought their powerful voices with them!
After the final number, the audience got a surprise — the children came back to the stage to join the choir for a bit of an encore:
Thanks to everyone who sang, played instruments, memorized lines, performed readings and cheered each other on. What a great way to feel the spirit of Advent as Christmas draws near.
