CANDLELIGHT CHORAL CONCERT | Dec 11 @ 4:00p
The First & Franklin Sanctuary Choir with conductor Jason Kissel are joined by harpist Jacqueline Pollauf, US Armed Forces Brass, and organist Kathie Metz in this annual concert of choral music for the seasons of Advent and Christmas. Opening with a stunning setting of O Come, O Come Emmanuel, the concert will feature John Rutter’s Gloria along with other music of the season.
Freewill offerings will be accepted.
NIGHT HEART | THIRD WEDNESDAYS | Third Wednesdays @ 7:30 PM
Come experience a beautiful space and reflective organ music, followed by refreshments and time for connecting with neighbors and friends. The space for reverie is the Gothic sanctuary of First & Franklin Presbyterian Church, partly lit by candles. Organist Jason Kissel will play for approximately 25 minutes with little speaking: this is not a worship service, but evening time for exploring inner worlds. For those who wish to stay afterward, an open chapel offers space for friendly conversation.
First & Franklin is an inclusive church: all are welcome. Dates (Third Wednesdays) are November 16th, December 21st, and January 18th.
