Our day of music started with the Celebration Ringers. Barbara Blevins, a long-time ringer, was unable to come due to illness, so our music accompanist, Boeun Kim, stepped in. Even though she had never picked up a hand bell, she did a fantastic job. Tricia Cox filled in at the last minute for Claire Horton. We have such a talented church.
The Service of Lessons and Carols was music by the Chancel Choir, an ensemble, Brea Knight on flute and by the readers Cathy Ogle, and Greg and Kerri Hutcheson.
Rev. Steve Sobczak, director, has done an amazing job.
Don, Terri and Daniel Ivory lit the Third Advent candle.
