christmas events

Whether it's a song on the radio or a hymn in church, songs are an integral part of the celebration of Christmas.  This year the HOPE of the season continues as 1st United Methodist Church brings you the Songs of Christmas.  From special carols presented by the Morning Glory Chorus to the voices lifted in the Chancel Choir cantata (scroll down to see where you can watch it on TV), to special sermons about the hopeful songs of Zechariah, Mary and the angels experience the Advent and Christmas season through song, fellowship, and prayer.
