Christmas time's a comin'! With Thanksgiving last week and only three weeks until Christmas, I am really in the holiday spirit now. That being said, this edition of Shine Your Light Wednesdays is just slightly different. Instead of a ministry/volunteer opportunity, just thought I'd share about the music ministry's upcoming event at our church.
This weekend, December 5th and 6th, Ridgecrest Baptist Church is hosting its annual Christmas program. This year, we are having A Festival of Keyboards!, with a four piano concert featuring Stephen Nielson, Ovid Young, Gerald Anderson, and Jeff Bennett (our choir director) with the Celebration Worship Choir and Orchestra.
In the choir and orchestra, I know we've been working on this program since the last part of August. The last few weeks have been tough and long choir practices, with having to memorize all the songs/parts to our songs.:) I'm so excited to be a part of this, though; God has truly blessed my life through this choir, and I've only been in it since August. I can't imagine life without the choir now, though. God bless Dan and the boys for putting up with the program CD in the car the last few weeks.:)LOL
Seriously, though, if you live in the Springfield or surrounding area, be sure to come. All concerts are free. The first one is Saturday, December 5 at 7pm. The other two concerts are Sunday, December 6 at 9am and 10:30am. If you need directions to the church, I'd be happy to help you out. Of course, if you can't make it for some reason, then you can watch the concerts on tv, KOLR 10, the weekend before and the week of Christmas.
