Christmas Cantata At Thompson UMC

This is the season of praise; this is the season of joy, a time of celebration.

On Sunday, December 3, at 3:00 p.m., “Season of Praise,” a Christmas celebration in song, will be presented by an Ecumenical Choir directed by Brenda Tiffany, accompanied on piano by Marcia Edel, and narrated by Matt Figura.

The choir, comprised of members belonging to area churches of several denominations, join together to give praise and celebrate the season which denotes the birth of Christ. Pastor Lloyd Canfield will open the program with a prayer of thanksgiving.

Everyone is invited to join in giving praise by proclaiming the joy that is ours this season. Immediately following the program, refreshments will be served in the church dining room.

If possible, wear that 50’s poodle skirt and leather jacket you kept all these years. Also bring your family and friends, because this will be an evening of fond memories as well as a time to enjoy some classic diner food and an evening of Christmas entertainment unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

Admission to this fun evening is two cans of food per person for the church food pantry, which provides for many in the community each month. Have fun and reach out to others at the same time. However, you must make your reservations as soon as possible, seating is filling fast. Call Nancy Sweazey at 756–2725 for reservations. Deadline for reservations is Monday, November 27.
