Just a quick note to let you know about the upcoming Christmas programs at Pleasant Garden Baptist Church that I will be participating in.
First, this Friday and Sunday nights (the 12th and the 14th), the adult choir (which we now call the PG Celebration Choir) will be presenting a musical drama titled “Hope Has Come.” The setting for this show is the stairs of a church in a New York City park and tells the story of a pastor who is faithfully trying to tell others about the hope that springs from the birth of a special baby over 2,000 years ago. The show begins at 7pm on Friday and 6pm on Sunday – come join us! I promise you won’t be disappointed.
The next week we will be doing something we haven’t done before – a modern worship service experience. On Sunday night, the 21st, beginning at 6:00pm, our various praise bands and teams will be leading an hour of Christmas and worship music mixed with testimonies and meaningful videos. I will be playing bass guitar and singing on several of these and can’t wait to just spend time in worship as we get very close to Christmas Day! Hope to see you there.
This past week I had the pleasure of playing the role of the angel Gabriel for our Senior Adult Choir’s Christmas program titled, “He is Here.” They did a fantastic job, by the way, and although I only had a few lines, I was able to present what I think is the best paragraph of the Christmas story: (I call it “The Linus Verse” for obvious reasons)
“Fear not! For behold, I bring you good tidings of a great joy which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord!” (Luke 2:10-11)
And that, as Linus tells Charlie Brown, is what Christmas is all about. I invite all of you to come out and enjoy these special programs. For directions to Pleasant Garden Baptist, click here to visit their webpage.
