Federated Church to present choir cantata

Published: Friday, Dec. 13, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

The Chancel Choir at The Federated Church in Sycamore will present the cantata, “Wonderful Counselor!” by John Purifoy, during the 10 a.m. service Sunday.

The cantata tells the Christmas story in song and readings, and includes several familiar carols arranged for congregation and choir together. Purifoy has written a number of original works for the piece and also arranged a few traditional carols with completely new melodies for variety.

The church’s handbell choir also will perform at this special musical service and members of the community are invited to attend.

Federated Church is an open and affirming congregation located at 612 W. State St., with parking available behind the building, off of Greeley Street.

For more information, visit or call the church office at 815-895-2706.
