FUN CHRISTMAS CAROL TRIVIA
By Kurt Snider
As Christmas rapidly approaches this year with many unknowns in our world, it may be difficult to relax and focus on Jesus’ birth. I’m sure it was also very difficult for Joseph and Mary as they were desperately trying to find a place to stay that holy night long ago. I hope these few fun Christmas Carol trivia facts will take your mind off things for a minute or two and help you to find a path on your journey to Bethlehem. You may even want to read or sing through these well-known carols as that holy night approaches once again.
The Choirs of Chestnut minister to all ages from children to teenagers to adults. We learn to sing and ring together primarily to contribute our praise and glory to the worship service. But Music at Chestnut goes beyond Worship. Music helps teach VBS, Christmas Pageants, and Musicals such as "Once Upon a Parable", Moses and the Freedom Fanatics", "Malice in the Palace", and "David and Goliath" just to name a few. Music Ministry at Chestnut reaches out into the community through concerts by our choirs as well as other groups such as "The Jeremiah People", Langley's "Heritage Band of America" and the "Virginia Wesleyan Choir". The world-renowned "Raleigh Ringers" Handbell Choir was also very well received by our congregation and the whole community! Participating in a choir at Chestnut is a wonderful experience with many benefits. You learn about music and tips on how to make music - and you may even make new Christian friends.
Chestnut offers opportunities for everyone to participate in Music Ministry - not only in Worship and hymn singing, but through the many singing and ringing choirs for all ages.
