We hope you will join us tonight at 7:00 p.m. for this year's Christmas Eve celebration in a prerecorded service of carols, bells, strings, organ, and choral music of Christmas past and present.
While recorded well before this Holy Night, the spirit of the season —and the Good News—is wholly manifested in the expressions of our communal worship together, albeit virtually.
A stable lamp is lighted whose glow shall wake the sky...
a barn shall harbour heaven, a stall become a shrine.
– from the carol "A Stable Lamp Is Lighted" by Richard Wilbur
Just a few days later, on the First Sunday after Christmas, a casual service of carols and stories. Join us for a relaxed worship hour of Christmas meditations and song as we gather around the piano and sing just a few more carols this year! There may even be a bad Christmas sweater or two. Sorry.
“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.”
– from the movie "Elf," spoken by the title character Buddy Hobbs (a would-be elf) played by Will Farrell.
Each week, Director of Music Mark Heiskanen writes a Music Minute previewing the upcoming Sunday's musical offerings and occasionally opines on other music-related topics.
We are blessed by an engaging music program at Plymouth!
