Multiple choirs make joyful noise
Edging into the holiday season, Anadarko-First UMC despaired of finding a choir director/music minister in time to prepare the annual Christmas cantata at the church. So choir members and church leaders reached out in another way.
God multiplied their effort, with astonishing results.
Musicians from eight area churches will perform three times at three sites in early December.
Chester Taylor will direct the cantata, "O Holy Night!" Even a bell choir will participate.
"I love it when the church sings and rings a new way!" exclaimed David Gardner, pastor at Anadarko-First UMC.
Participating churches are: Apache First Baptist, Apache Pentecostal, Anadarko Bethel Baptist, Midway Baptist, Anadarko First Christian; and three United Methodist churches: Apache-First, Anadarko-St. Paul’s, and Anadarko-First.
Performances, at 3 p.m., will be on Dec. 7 at Apache First Baptist, on Dec. 14 at Anadarko-First UMC, and on Dec. 21 at Apache-First UMC.
