Alliance Community Church hosts thirtieth annual holiday concert

Christmas is in the Heart was the theme of the two inter-church concerts Dec. 3

Fourteen local community churches came together Dec. 3 to put on two sacred Christmas concerts at the Alliance Community Church.

The 3p.m service showcased the H. J. Cody School Choir, directed by Kerry Heisler and accompanied by Darla Bell while the choir sang three selections, “We Must Believe”, “When Peace Shall Come”, and “Hallelujah.”

The C.P. Blakely Elementary School Choir sang “Peaceful” and “When All the Lights Shine” with Jodi Molten directing.

Brooklyn Hughes and Ainsley McCallum sang several songs together and led the congregation in singing “Oh Come, All Ye Faithful” before the Sacred Massed Choir and director Kerry Heisler sang musical selections from Christmas in the Heart.

The evening service featured the Memorial Presbyterian Church singing “Everywhere I Go” with Dolce Moir conducting and Cheri Kay playing the piano.

The Sylvan Seventh Day Adventist Church sang “Hear the Glad Tidings” and “The Morning Trumpet” before Brooklyn Hughes and Ainsley McCallum took the stage once again.

Violinist Julie Olive played “Oh Holy Night” and “Salut D’amour” before the Sacred Massed Choir did a second performance of their earlier concert.

Donations collected at the concerts will be distributed to Bibles for Grads, the SLCPA Compassion Fund, the Sylvan Lake Food Bank and the Sylvan Lake Christmas Bureau.
