Grove First United Methodist Church will present “Images of Christmas,” Sunday, December 14th at 2:00 p.m. This musical celebration of the Christmas season  will feature two handbell choirs and adult and children’s choirs.   A blend of traditional carols and stirring anthems will jubilantly bring in the holiday season.

“We look forward each year to presenting a message through song that fills hearts with the miracle of Jesus,” shared Nancy Lungren, Director of Music. “This year our adult choir joins voices with our children’s choir and two different handbell choirs.  They have worked tirelessly to prepare this offering and we invite the entire community to share in this special time of celebration.”

The Chancel Choir and Celebration Ringers are under the direction of Nancy Lungren.  Accompanist and director of the Jubilee Ringers is Nancy Flowers.   The children’s choir directors are Terri David and assisted by Dennis Neff.    Visual and audio arts enhancements are made possible by Steve Bestmann and Rick DuBois.
