Musical Oratorio Presented At First Christian Church

Thursday, December 6, 2012

A musical performance of Camille Saint-Saens’ Christmas Oratorio by the First Christian Church Chancel Choir will be this Sunday’s special music during Advent beginning at 10:45 a.m. on Sunday. Featured soloists include Sarah Schone, Lonna Wiliams, Bob Sauser, Brittany Fong, Perry Ward and John Holcombe. Accompanying the choir will be several members of the Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra, playing harp and strings. Visitors are always welcome.

As the Christmas season nears, it is a time to think of others. As a sponsor for Brown Academy, church members are asking for help in providing balls, activity kits, toys, games and puzzles for the children to “purchase” using their earned “Brown Bucks.” Please donate items to the Brown Academy bin in the lobby.

Regular outreach activities this week include NA meetings, Mondays and Fridays at 8 p.m.; and Tai Chi on Friday at 11 a.m. Wednesday Fellowship Dinner this week is Dec. 12 at 5:30 p.m. - a complete dinner for $5. Immediately following dinner, enjoy a concert by the Brown Academy Student Choir.

Volunteer activities include Habitat for Humanity assistance on Dec. 8 or helping to serve a meal at the Room in the Inn on Dec. 30.

First Christian Church is at 650 McCallie Ave. Its unique motto is a “Church of Service, Not Lip Service.” Visit Firstchristian-chat.com, like us on Facebook, or call the church office at 267-4506 for more information.

His interview, the multi-year history of administrative non-performance (despite consistent repetitive funding), and a review of the organizational ... (click for more)

Please sign up for updates because a lot of us need to ... (click for more)
