The Mystery and the Majesty
The Christmas Cantata at First Presbyterian has and is a fun time for singers to gather for 12 weeks to prepare for sharing the Good News through music. The Christmas Cantata being planned for this year is “the Mystery and the Majesty” by Joseph M. Martin. From the jubilant glories to gentle manger lullabies, this inspirational cantata celebrates the wonder and splendor of Christmas! Traditional carols and newly composed seasonal anthems blend with thoughtful narration to help create a meaningful experience for our community of faith. Titles include: A Christmas Flourish; Carol of Longing; Advent Jubilation; The Coming Joy; Upon a Midnight Clear; A Call to Christmas Joy; Journey to Bethlehem; The Beautiful Impossible and A Noel Proclamation. Rehearsals are scheduled to start on Wednesday, September 12th at 6:30pm. It is a SATB so we will need lots
of voices particularly tenor and basses. We will have professionally made CDs available for learning parts. Sign up sheet is in the music room or email Kris at firstname.lastname@example.org
Cantata rehearsals: Wed evenings Sept. 12th through Dec. 12th
Dress rehearsal Sat., Dec. 15th at 10:30am
Performance Sun., Dec. 16th during 10:30am worship service

Welcome to First Pres. FDL’s Network Breeze is a password protected, member’s only resource that allows members to access a directory of the church members, to upload photos of themselves and family for the directory, and for people to access their own giving information. No one else can access that information and any who wish not to have their contact information visible can request to be blocked. But for most of us it is a handy way to be in contact with one another and access information about events, and activities.
We hope that you will find this a helpful resource for building our relationships as Christ’s community together.
