There will be a lot of familiar songs, performed in a variety of musical styles at this year’s Christmas Cantata at First Baptist Church of Eupora.
“This program is different in that it is strictly music without drama or narration,” said John Herring, minister of music and associate pastor at FBC Eupora. “What I love about this year’s cantata is the fact that it has all different styles of music. There really is something for everybody! The cantata is totally different from what we did last year. We used drama last year where this year is only music, no narration and no drama.”
Glory Divine will be presented at 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 18 in the sanctuary of FBC Eupora. There are no tickets and the event is free to the public. There will be an open rehearsal at 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17 that will also be open for the public.
This year’s Christmas Cantata, “Christmas Is Jesus,” at First Baptist Church of Eupora is “a reminder to all of us that Christmas really is about Jesus and only Jesus.”
“We get so caught up in the busyness of the holiday, the giving and receiving of gifts that we tend to lose sight of the fact that God gave to us the greatest gift, that of His Son,” Herring said. “He came to us when we were His enemies. He showed us love that we didn’t deserve through the gift of His Son.”
