GENERAL MUSIC PHILOSOPHY
The Bible assures us that each of us has been given gifts and St. Luke UMC will provide anyone who wants to with an opportunity to give those gifts back to God and our community. Whether you sing, play an instrument, dance, create decor, create graphics or visual art, design costumes, organize libraries or simply have the ability to encourage others, there is a place here for you to serve. No matter your age, we want you here — to work alongside others who love Jesus. Each of the service areas listed will offer more information on how you can serve. Join us!
Chancel Choir's Christmas Cantata
CHRISTMAS IS CALLING was crafted by the creative writing team of Tony Wood and Michael Farren, and arranged and orchestrated by J. Daniel Smith. The carefully constructed, dynamic songs in this musical will bring you into a time of worship and reflection while being reminded of the significant birth of Christ the King…born to bring peace, hope and joy to the broken, lost and the “least of these.”
Themes like lights, tinsel and wreaths begin to unwrap the wonder of the season before intentionally giving way to the divine mystery found in a starry silent night, angel choirs, and the holy promised Child. This work is a sharply compelling, laser-focused musical that brings to life a deeply inspirational, thought-provoking narrative emerging out of uniquely captivating songs. It explores the significance of the birth of Christ and how that child brings peace, hope and joy to the broken and the lost.
