First Baptist Choir sings Christmas Cantata

Norm Noble

The powerful cantata, A Great and Mighty Wonder will be sung by the First Baptist Church Choir at the Sun Lakes Country Club Clubhouse on the 4th of December at 4:00 p.m. It will be performed again at the First Baptist Church on Sunday, December 11 at their 10:00 a.m. service.

As FBCSL Pastor George Shuttleworth says, “The Christmas story prompts us to a profound sense of awe and wonder. It is a love story conceived in the heart of a great and mighty God before the creation of time. The gospel of Luke records that after the shepherds had seen the newborn Messiah, they spread the word about what they had experienced. All who heard it were amazed. Even first century witnesses stood in awe of this wondrous event and the story continues to stir the hearts and minds of people who hear it afresh each year.”

Veteran composer and arranger Tom Fettke takes the listener again to Bethlehem to experience the fulfillment of God’s plan in a humble manger. Beloved and familiar carols along with inspiring new texts and melodies are masterfully blended to create a Christmas worship experience as again we are invited to celebrate the great and mighty wonder of God’s love.

First Baptist Church is located at 9535 E. Riggs Road, Sun Lakes. Call the church for additional details at 480-895-1088.
