Bethany’s Christmas Concerts on December 4th!
On Sunday, December 4, a 51 year community Christmas tradition will take place at Bethany Lutheran Church of Long Beach, as it has since 1969. The public is invited to attend one of two candlelight Christmas concerts, “Peace to the World is Given,” at 3:00 pm or 7:00 p.m. Seating is available on a first-come-first-served basis. There is no admission fee. A freewill offering will be received to benefit the Music Ministry and Music Scholarship Fund.
Jordan Kirby, Interim Choral Director, will lead this year’s concerts and has selected a variety of sacred choral and orchestral music. Sure to delight concert attendees is an array of uplifting anthems including “Rejoice!” by Tom Fettke. Bethany’s adult choir will present anthems by Dan Forrest, Molly Ijames, Gustaf Nordquist, and Mark Sheppard. The advanced handbell choir will present “Bright and Glorious is the Sky” and “On this Day Earth Shall Ring”. Children’s choirs will also be featured singing anthems which tell of the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. Guest organist is Robert Bottoms.
