Christmas @ Covenant

Get Involved

Get Involved for Christmas

Christmas is a special time of year and a great time to get involved! This year we are adding an Advent Choir for ages 14 and older, that will participate on Sunday mornings by helping the Praise Team lead worship during each Advent Sunday.

The children will be able to participate in a Christmas Pageant during our annual Voices of Christmas celebration, and our Christmas Eve Ensemble will again be getting together to help lead worship for the Christmas Eve service.

If you are interested in participating or helping out please contact Tiffany Blackmon at tiffany@cpcauburn.org

The dates of Advent are December 3rd, December 10th, December 17th, and December 24th.

Advent Choir

Practices will be held each Sunday of Advent at 9:30 am prior to the service, as there will be no Sunday School during the month of December. We will run through the day’s hymns together and make sure everyone knows their parts and to do a warm-up and sound check.  The hymns will be familiar and you will have music to read.

Children’s Christmas Program

The children will meet during their Sunday School hour to practice for the Covenant Children’s Program. The first meeting will be October 8th just to go over a run down of expectations and roles. Meredith Taunton will be heading up this part of Christmas at Covenant.
