DeKALB – The traditional Christmas Cantata at DeKalb First United Methodist Church is coming soon.
The group received an early gift in the form of a grant from the DeKalb County Community Foundation. At the Nov. 8 practice, Charlie McCormick, DCCF board member, presented a check to Cantata Director Christine Monteiro and President Sally Mullis. The grant of $1,860.70 will help the nonprofit Cantata board purchase much-needed materials.
The Cantata will perform “Bethlehem Morning” at DeKalb FUMC at
7 p.m. Thursday and Dec. 9. The final performance at the church will be at
2 p.m. Dec. 10.
While it is a ministry of FUMC, the Cantata members represent many area churches and communities, and all singers are volunteers.
They have been preparing for this concert since early September and are excited to once again perform for the community.
The church is at 317 N. Fourth St. It is handicapped-accessible and there is no charge for admission, although there will be an opportunity to make a free-will donation. All are invited.
