United Church Youth Invite You to Their Christmas Musical

The Kensington United Church Youth will perform their Christmas musical this Sunday, December 16 during the worship service beginning at 10:25 AM at their church located at 204 West Cedar. Their program this year will be another special Brentwood Benson Company performance called “What a Beautiful Name”.

Each year the youth help select the Christmas program that they would like to perform. This year’s selection is all musical singing with special narration and video backdrop. They will be singing some of the traditional songs of Christmas mixed with new Christian artist songs that will celebrate the story of Jesus. You will be blessed by the solos, duets and choir numbers that the youth will sing. This is truly a gift from the church youth. The church is thankful for the youth dedicating their time and talents again to present a special program.

Please join the United Church family for a hot beef sandwich lunch in the basement following the worship service. If possible you are asked to bring a side dish to enjoy with the delicious hot beef sandwiches. All are invited to attend.
