Sunday and Dec. 28
program in Murray
On Sunday night, the adult choir will present “Light Looked Down” arranged by Marty Parks. This beautiful collection of songs, carols and drama serves to remind people that God sent Jesus to be an extraordinary presence in life, no matter how anyone might feel in his or her heart.
On the night of Dec. 28, the youth choir will sing selections from “Celebrate the Day” created by Jonathan Crumpton and Luke Gambill. This modern praise and worship musical for Christmas relates a message of relationship with Jesus for every day of the year and especially during the Christmas holidays.
Songs like “I Will Follow” and “Light of the World” are arranged along with contemporary versions of beloved traditional carols.
The children’s and adult musicals will begin at 6 p.m. on Sunday night.
The youth service will begin at 7 p.m. on Wednesday. Poplar Spring Baptist Church is located just east of Murray about five miles within the Pottertown community at 749 Poplar Springs Drive.
