SunBird’s Community Church invites all to Christmas Eve service

Bob Neuman

Few residents will disagree that SunBird has been blessed with friendly and talented people. The many and varied productions in our Ballroom featuring local performers attest to these facts.

On Christmas Eve, another production will occur that has these elements but includes another item that is very important. The purpose is to honor our Lord as we recall the birth of the baby Jesus.

SunBird Community Church invites all to join in the unabated joy of Christmas. The theme will be “I’ll be home for Christmas.” Doors will open at 5:45 p.m. with the service beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The Ballroom will include Christmas trees sparkling with hundreds of lights and feature a nativity scene. Reverend Jim Baugh, who is renowned for his vocals, will perform with his entire family. Our church choir will offer Christmas hymns. You will hear the beautiful voice of Sam Bastin, Trisha Russell at the piano, instrumentals on mandolin and violin by Ted Kraft and Hank Miller reading the Christmas story throughout the presentation. Reverend Baugh will deliver a brief Christmas message.

A very special addition is Nathan Guerkink, grandson of residents Warren and Connie Guerkink. He will bless us with his expertise with the cello. Nathan, a freshman at University of Boston, is a former member of the Boston Youth Orchestra and now performs with the famous Boston Pops Orchestra.

You may ask the price of attending this Christmas Eve service. The answer is there is no fee or any amount large enough to cover the many blessings our Lord has showered upon us all.

Come worship, enjoy a fantastic evening, but leave your money at home.

Our Father and we will be expecting you.
