"The Christmas Light"
Experience the magic of the season with the North Scottsdale UMC Chancel Choir's enchanting presentation of "The Christmas Light," accompanied by a full orchestra. Join us on Sunday, December 17, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. in our spacious 600-seat sanctuary for an uplifting performance that traces the journey from the hopeful darkness of early Advent to the radiant birth of Christ. This exquisite cantata, dubbed "A Masterwork Cantata for Christmas," draws inspiration from the timeless compositions of Haydn, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Praetorius, and Schubert, interwoven with cherished Christmas carol melodies by Gruber, Handel, Mendelssohn, and Wade. Prepare to be immersed in the spirit of the season through soul-stirring choruses, narrations, and biblical passages. The concert and reception are both free and open to the public.
Following this inspiring performance, we invite the community to partake in a delightful Hot Cocoa Bar reception in our fellowship hall. Indulge in steaming cups of hot cocoa adorned with all the trimmings, and don't miss our "make & take ornament" station where you can craft your own keepsake. This post-event celebration promises warmth, cheer, and the joy of the season.
