Christmas Musical
All Year Long — A Christmas Musical (Presented by The Chapel Choir)

December 15 & 16 starting at 7:00 p.m.
As Christians, we should view Christmas and Easter as if they are bound together, for we cannot observe one without thinking about the other. This musical is a reminder that—because of the birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension of the perfect Lamb of God—everyone can thankfully, joyfully, and obediently celebrate His love and grace all year long. Join us for light refreshments afterwards in the foyer.
