Ukulele Choirs go Caroling!

On Saturday, December 12th our Music Director, Sharon Moore, led members of our Children’s, Youth, and Adult Ukulele Choirs as they went caroling at Wilmington Health and Rehab.    We had quite a bit of fun singing Christmas songs with the residents there.  Below are a few pictures.

Joy Gift: 12/6/15

Sing choirs of angels!   Come shepherds, sheep, donkey, cows, and snake.  (Snake!?!)  Come adore the Christ Child.   Our Joy Gift worship service (held in support of the Christmas Joy offering of the PCUSA) featured the gifts of our children’s choir, youth ukulele choir, adult ukulele choir, Chancel Choir, and adult instrumentalists.  We shared the story of Jesus’ birth through videos narrated by our children and families.  Many thanks to Rachel, Sharon, and everyone who helped put the worship service together.

A little girl who loves snakes was invited to be the snake in the manger scene.  (Really, there probably was a snake around somewhere.  It was a barn, you know!)
