Join us as the combined choirs of Chatham Heights Baptist and First Baptist Church of Martinsville present “A Celebration of Carols” by Joseph M. Martin.

This year’s cantata is based on the traditional “Lessons and Carols” service. Filled to overflowing with beloved carols and original seasonal songs, this cantata tells the story of Christ’s birth adorned with beautiful arrangements and meaningful Scriptures. Titles include: A Christmas OvertureO Come, All Ye FaithfulA Prayer for AdventPeople of Promise, Arise!; Song of Hope and JoyO Little Town of BethlehemMy Soul Doth Magnify the LordLullabies of BethlehemAngels We Have Heard on High; Carols for SeekersLet Christmas BeginA Christmas Trilogy.

Today is the Fourth Sunday of Advent, the inaugural season of the Christian year. Advent is a time of spiritual preparation for the coming of Christ; thus, it is a season of both joyous and solemn expectation. The liturgical color is purple, symbolic of a spirit of preparation.
