The Water Valley community is invited to join the congregation of First Christian Church as we celebrate Jesus Christ this Christmas season!
This Sunday, December 20, at 6:30 p.m the adult choir will present the beautiful Christmas cantata, “Only Love.” Come share with us in the most beautiful love story ever written, the love that God showed when He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to be our Savior.
The choir is under the direction of Mrs. Marilyn Blankenship and Mrs. Lou Ann Holt is the accompanist. Mr. Jerry Holt will be narrating. As a special feature our Children’s Choir, under the direction of Deniece Fowler, will be singing two special pieces. This cantata will move our hearts and minds as we reflect on a story that only love could write. A finger food fellowship will follow the cantata.
