The choir appreciates the many wonderful comments about our singing when the Bishop visited. It was truly a joyous day and we will happily be preparing anthems for the 7: 15 PM Christmas Eve service. Please note the different time for the later Festal Eucharist.
Many thanks to Lea Bortner and the children who sang and chimed so beautifully on October 6— they will be offering their gifts again at the Family Service on Christmas Eve at 5 PM. Father Timothy Albright will join us as celebrant for both services.
What a great kickoff to our 13th season. The Messiah College Faculty Brass Quintet was superb and now we look forward to another amazing concert on November 24 with mezzo-soprano Jennifer Laubach and Pottsville native, pianist John Kline, IV. Please see the flyer in this edition of the TOPICS. Once again a huge thank you to our patrons and audience whose generosity and support have enabled us to continue this series through 12 seasons! We are looking forward to these concerts and the great receptions that follow with delicious food and lively conversation.
Our second concert of the 2019-20 season will be held on November 24. We are looking for your savory and sweet goodies for the reception after this concert. There will be sign-up sheets in the ambulatory and on the bulletin board across from the lounge several weeks before the concert. Thank you in advance for providing such scrumptious offerings as we enjoy fellowship with our artists and audience.
