Set the holiday season in motion by attending the 70th anniversary Christmas cantata on Sunday, December 1, at 5:00 p.m. at the Emmanuel Mennonite Brethren Church. The performance by the Sully Area Singers will be followed with a chili supper in the basement fellowship hall.

A favorite among the singers, Memories of a Merry Christmas was previously performed in 2000 and 2006. The half-hour long cantata features familiar Christmas music such as ‘Away in a Manger,’ ‘Joy to the World,’ and ‘Go, Tell it on the Mountain,’ and is the perfect way to celebrate the onset of the Christmas season on the first Sunday in Advent.

A highlight of the performance will be the audience carol sing-along, and everyone is invited to join in the fellowship of the chili supper following the performance.
