For the Proceeds from our Christmas Cantata
On Sunday, December 23, 2018, there was a Christmas Cantata performed by our Chancel Choir.
The “Dream a Dream” Christmas Cantata was developed by musician/composer Ron Klusmeier as a fundraiser for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, which the United Church has supported for many years—it was our White Gift charity this year. The words to the anthems and hymns are all by Shirley Erena Murray—a New Zealand lyricist who writes provocatively and inspirationally.
The Canadian Foodgrains Bank mission is:
“providing food in times of crisis for hungry people in the developing world; helping people grow more food to better feed themselves and their families, and providing nutritional support to malnourished people with a focus on pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and young children.”
