Princeton Bible Church Choir prepares for Christmas musical

PRINCETON — The Princeton Bible Church Choir will present its Christmas cantata, “The Gift of Christmas” by Claire Cloninger and Gary Rhodes, at 7 p.m. Dec. 20 and at the 10:15 a.m. worship service on Dec. 22 at the Princeton Bible Church.

The musical celebrates Jesus Christ as the Gift and the Giver of Christmas with the retelling of the Christmas story through familiar carols and some lovely new songs. The 25-voice adult choir will be joined by a children’s choir for a couple of songs, and several soloists and ensembles will be featured as well.

The choir is anxious to give the gift of music and celebration to the community through this presentation, and consequently there is no admission charge. To keep the gift going on, the choir will be caroling and taking bags of food to needy families in the community on Dec. 23 so those who would like to participate in those gifts are asked to bring along non-perishable food items to the performances to include in the gift bags. The choir is excited to give a double blessing to the community of Princeton.
