Our annual Christmas Cantata Retreat is coming at the end of the month! We will rehearse Mark Hayes’ Come to the Manger from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and then end rehearsal with lunch and fellowship in the PLC Lobby. The cantata will be presented the weekend of December 8 and 9 at all three sanctuary services. We also have two additional off-site presentations of the cantata planned for December 7 and 18. Rehearsals occur twice a week, beginning Thursday, November 1 from 8-9 p.m., following our regular choir rehearsal. Sunday rehearsals begin November 4, from 9:15-10 a.m. If you would like to learn more about joining the Christmas Cantata, please contact Sue Hamilton at shamilton@stjohns-springfield. org.
