Sanctuary moves into season five with a spirit of anticipation for the joy experienced as hundreds raise their voices in song and for the inspiration of reflective moments prompted by musical offerings of choirs and instrumentalists. As this series has become established in our community, it has also become a source of generous support for those in need locally and internationally.
 
These concerts are offered as a gift to the community. A free will offering will be collected with half going toward a stated mission project, and the other half used to defray ongoing costs.

Season five opens with a burst of praise and thanksgiving. The 3,000 pipes of Letourneau Opus 107 will join with instruments and percussion in music of celebration, including French toccatas and Bach’s exciting D major Fugue. The most exciting moments will come as voices unite in heartfelt hymn singing. Join us to celebrate the past, present and future mission of the Christ Church Music Ministry!

Christmas Concerts

Sunday, December 8, 2013 at 5:00 pm

Wednesday, December 11, 2013 at 7:30 pm

Sunday, December 15, 2013 at 9:00 and 11:15 am

Tuesday, December 17, 2013 at 7:30 pm

 
The 2013 Christmas concert centers on these words from Silent Night, Holy Night the most beloved of all Christmas carols.  Their familiarity has become so linked with the warm feelings of candlelight, that their power can be easily over looked. These words of scripture found in I John 1:5, “God is Light and in Him is no darkness at all” call us to reflection and redirection.
 
To invite the light of Christ into one’s life is an act of surrender. Light exposes what we prefer to keep hidden.  Allowing  “love’s pure light” to find a home in us, frees us  to reflect  the hope, joy and freedom known in Christ.

This message will be proclaimed through familiar carols, African songs of praise and inspiring anthems  accompanied by orchestra and harp along with the healing  sound of handbells.
 
Your willingness to ride the Christ Church Shuttle from the Summit Office Park located at 4350 Brownsboro Road (corner of Brownsboro Road and Hubbards Lane) will insure adequate parking for all who wish to attend. The shuttle will begin running one hour prior to and immediately following the concerts. You will be picked up and dropped off at your car.
