Christmas Cantata & Reception

12/17/2023 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM


Christmas Cantata & Reception
Sunday, December 17th, 2023 — 10:00 a.m.

“The Christmas Light”

The North Scottsdale UMC Chancel Choir will present “The Christmas Light” with a full orchestra on Sunday, December 17, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. in their 600 seat sanctuary. Following this inspirational performance, the community is invited to join them for a delightful Hot Cocoa Bar reception in the fellowship hall. The reception will offer hot cocoa with all the trimmings and include a “make & take ornament” station. This event is free and open to the public.

“The Christmas Light” beautifully captures the journey from the hopeful darkness of early Advent to the radiant birth of Christ, fulfilling God’s promise. This superb cantata subtitled “A Masterwork Cantata for Christmas,” features choruses inspired by the works of J.M. Haydn, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Praetorius, and Schubert, along with Christmas carol melodies from Gruber, Handel, Mendelssohn, and Wade. The performance includes narration and biblical passages.

After the performance, NSUMC will host a Hot Cocoa Bar featuring hot cocoa, sweet garnishes, and Christmas pastries. As a special touch, they will have “To-Go” hot cocoa ornaments and holiday cards for everyone to take home and share with loved ones. It’s a sweet way to spread holiday cheer!

North Scottsdale United Methodist Church celebrates the love of the Christ child through our 10:00 a.m. Sunday service. They offer Sunday school for children aged two through twelve, with youth Sunday school (grades six through twelve) also during the 10:00 a.m. service. Their vibrant array of children and youth activities includes children’s choir, volleyball, mission trips, small groups, festivals, and youth groups. NSUMC provides a wide range of adult Bible studies, men’s and women’s groups, choirs, retreats, holiday events, turn-around trips, mission trips, and more.
