Sing Joy to All the World!

The choir of Flemington Presbyterian Church will present 'Sing Joy to All the World' at the 9:30am worship service. Led by music director and organist J. Jay Smith, the choir will be accompanied by Margaret Sheneman, flute, and David Michalewsky, trumpet.

From the publisher (Lorenz): "We gather to tell the story of Emmanuel, God With Us! We gather to remember this story, to wait, and watch for Him to come again--even now. Come, Lord Jesus!" The overriding theme of this inspiring Christmas work by Lloyd Larson is joy. It celebrates the promise that joy comes to those who wait, that following the long dark night, the breaking of dawn brings joy for the new day. The Old Testament tells of God's promise to Israel, which was fulfilled in the coming of the Messiah to the remote village of Bethlehem. As recipients of that joy, it becomes the privilege and responsibility of all who have experienced it to share the good news: "Sing Joy to All the World!" The music incorporates original melodies with familiar carols in a work that ranges from contemplative to celebratory.

Christmas Eve Worship Services

Welcome to our Christmas Eve services, as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ!

8:00 p.m. This traditional service of lessons and carols will feature the familiar scriptures of the birth of our Lord, with inspirational music by the Chancel Choir and the lighting of the Christmas candle. We will share in the singing of “Silent Night” as our sanctuary fills with light as the glow of candlelight passes from one to another. Then, we conclude with the triumphant strains of “Joy to the World!"

10:00 p.m. This meditative service of lessons and carols will feature the familiar scriptures of the birth of our Lord, accompanied by inspirational instrumental and vocal music. Quiet carols and prayers will inspire. At the conclusion of the service, we will leave with the strains of “Silent Night” and the glow of candlelight warming our hearts with the deep joy of the season.
