Worship Ministry

CCGF Christmas Choir 2021

Worship Pastor – Brad Lebakken
Choir Director – Steve Wilson

The CCGF Christmas Choir will participate in worship for our traditional services.  Below is the practice and service schedule for the Christmas Choir.  Except for a dress rehearsal on Dec 21, all practices will be held in the choir room.  To get to the choir room, come in the main entrance at the overhang, go down the steps straight ahead, make a left at the bottom of the steps and go straight through kid’s ministry.  At the end of the hallway go through the door on your right and that door takes you into the choir room.

We ask that you make at least 3 of the following 6 rehearsals.  Make every effort to make the rehearsal on Dec. 21 as we will be singing with the band for the first time and letting our tech team get us set on stage for the house and livestream visuals.  For these services we are asking that you dress formally and wear black and/or red.  We are looking for primary red, not maroon or another shade but a traditional Christmas red.  You could wear all black or all red or a combination of the two.  There are many reasons for this dress code including the stage layout and the Christmas set onstage.
