Christmas Music Devotional Will Be Held Dec. 8

Friday, November 30, 2018 - by Phil Smartt

The Chattanooga Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, at 3067 Ooltewah Ringgold Road, will host its annual Christmas Music Devotional at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 8.  Everyone of every age is welcome to attend.  The event is free of charge.

The concert will celebrate the birth and life of Jesus Christ through music.  The prelude will include a special rendition of Ave Maria, Coventry Carol, and O Holy Night, with guitar and harp accompaniments.  The choir and congregation will open the service by singing Joy to the World.  

Other musical presentations include Carol of the Bells; O Come, O Come Emmanuel; For Unto Us a Child is Born; O Come All Ye Faithful; The Night that Christ was Born; God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen; Away in a Manger; Gesu Bambino; What Child is This?; To Save is Why He Came; This is the Christ; My Gift, My Offering; Hallelujah Chorus; He Sent His Son; and The First Noel.  Many songs will be sung with instrumental accompaniment to include bells, flutes, trumpets, guitars, harps, piano, and the organ.  The choir and congregation will conclude with Silent Night.  

“To Save is Why He Came” is an original composition written and composed by Cristy Schuch.  An all-women’s chorus from the Schuch, Collier and Wolfe families will perform the song for the first time.   

Stake choir director Kathy Wolfe said, “Our intent is to lift the spirits of all those in the greater Chattanooga area by putting Christ at the center of Christmas.  We invite everyone to join us in praising His holy name, especially during this Christmas season when we celebrate that He lived, and died, and Arose from the grave that we might live again.  This is the joy of Jesus.  So, come, let us adore Him of whom the prophets and apostles have testified will come again to usher in the blessings of peace on earth and goodwill toward men” (Luke 2:14).
