United Methodist choirs prepare for cantata

Many Ada congregations planning special Christmas programs

By Monty Siekerman
Scott Henning (right) rehearses with the Ada United Methodist Church chancel choir and youth choir in preparation for a cantata to be given during the worship service at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 3.

"The Silence and the Sound" is the title of the cantata which will be presented by both choirs. Henning, the church music director, described the piece as mysterious in the beginning, joyful at the end. All are welcome.

The Icon invites Ada area churches to provide special Christmas program information. Send to Monty Siekerman at: montysiekerman60@gmail.com
