Children’s Christmas Musical | Angel Alert
Sunday, December 3, 2017 | 9:30 & 10:55 a.m.
“Angel" means "messenger," and what better way to spread the message at Christmas than with angels! In Angel Alert, our entire children's choir is made up of angels who are waiting to be told when to go to earth to make the grand announcement. As they wait for the call, they review God's faithfulness through his promises and some of the prophecies of the Savior's birth. The musical is full of worship and plenty of celebration since the angels understand the love God has for his people in sending his Son to earth.
