December 11 at 4pm

"My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord," sang Mary, in Luke 1:46–55, the text still sung today as the Magnificat. On Sunday, Dec. 11 at 4pm, join Grace's Senior Choir, the Grace School 5–8 choir, Joyful Voices and the Adult Handbell Choir for a concert proclaiming the birth of Christ and peace. The program includes traditional hymns and carols, music of Lauridsen, Cornelius, Bouman and Schalk, and a performance of Paul Weber's setting of the Magnificat. Childcare is available in the church nursery. There's a reception following the service in Fellowship Hall.
