Together for Christmas
A Worship Experience for the Family of God
by Pepper Choplin
During the Christmas season, highways and airports are bustling with people as they make their way to be with friends and family for the holidays. So, also, does the family of God gather to worship during this blessed time celebrating the birth of Jesus.
Together for Christmas explores and emphasizes the importance of this seasonal gathering of the family of God, both emotionally and spiritually, though the family be of diverse ages, musical preferences, and worship traditions.
Using the simplest of musical means, all will be drawn into this welcoming presentation of the story of the nativity. A seasonal blend of refreshing new music, beloved carols and traditional melodies, simply stated, yet profound narration and deeply felt texts all serve to nurture the congregation and to promote the predominate themes of the season: hope, peace, joy and love.
There are two choral options available- one for SATB choirs and one for smaller choirs, each very effective and compelling. There are three accompaniment options: choir and keyboard, choir and orchestra (live or with the Accompaniment CD), and choir with digital keyboard and rhythm section. A power-point presentation is also available to enhance the visual impact of every performance.
In whatever format is chosen, Together for Christmas will bless, encourage and uplift your congregation to minister to each other through the hope, the peace, the joy, and the love brought to all of us with the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ.
