The Christmas story will be told in word and song as La Canada Presbyterian Church presents four Christmas Eve services, at 4:00 p.m., 5:30 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 24.
The celebration will also include LCPC’s annual Christmas concert, featuring carols performed by the 100 musicians of the LCPC Chancel Choir and Orchestra in “What Shall We Give Him?” on Sunday, Dec. 20, at 2 p.m. The free concert will be a multimedia event, featuring movie excerpts, video clips and pictures of favorite Christmas images. It will be narrated by actor Courtney B. Vance, a local resident.
The Christmas Eve services at 4 and 5:30 p.m. “are designed for all generations – whether you have children or not,” said Judy Brock, who directs LCPC’s youth choirs, assisted by her twin sister, Janet Boggs. “They will express the joy and meaning of Christmas through the beautiful voices of our children and youth, with traditional carols and contemporary praise songs accompanied by guitars, mandolin, dobro and fiddle.”
The 7:30 p.m. service will include the Praise Band, led by Andrew Pratt, with candle lighting.
At 9:30, Jack Lantz will lead a concert featuring the Chancel Choir and its talented soloists. It will be followed at 10 by a traditional service of Lessons & Carols.
