THANKSGIVING DAY SERVICE 10:00 AM
Join us this Thursday for a service of Thanksgiving.
First Saint Paul’s annual Christmas Concert will be Sunday, December 14, 3:30 PM. As in the past the choir will be joined by guest soloists and instrumentalists. The program focuses upon Mary’s great song of praise in settings by Antonio Vivaldi, Richard Hillert, and Joseph Bonnet. We will also hear Olivier Messiaen’s reflection on the Magnificat for piano. The Choir also sings music by Michael Praetorius, Johann Eccard, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and the first performance of a new carol by Carl Schalk. Together we all will sing familiar carols to round out the program.
Free parking is available, and a candlelight reception follows the concert. You can support this concert in two ways: help to pass the word by telling your friends and neighbors, and consider a gift of financial support for the concert. All gifts received in the office by December 8 will be acknowledged in the program.
In the name of Jesus Christ, welcome! Here on the corner of LaSalle & Goethe in Chicago's Gold Coast, it is our hope that whenever you are with us, you will feel and know that God has a special place and a special love for you. Whether at worship, through educational programs, a gift of service at our Community Meals Program, in fellowship, a concert or conversation, there is an open invitation for you to participate. Feel welcome to be with us. Your presence here makes our community richer and fuller.
