Amahl and the Night Visitors
In celebration of Three Kings Day, the Senior and Junior Choirs will
present Amahl and the Night Visitors by the Italian composer Gian-
Carlo Menotti. He called it an opera in one act. It was the first opera
commissioned especially for television and had its premiere in New
York City on Christmas Eve 1951.
Amahl, a child, is the focal figure or the opera, and in Menotti’s words,
“all the actions and personalities must be interpreted simply and
directly in terms of a child’s imagination.”

If you have ever wondered what is might have been like to actually
meet and talk to the three wise men on their journey to see the baby
Jesus, this is our chance! We hope you will come and support the
hard work our faithful choir members have put toward this

Web Site Ad-Hoc Committee
The Church Board has approved the formation of an Ad-Hoc
committee to re-visit the current web site and develop a proposal to
enhance its current functionality.  The first step in this process is to
collect all of the content requirements from the congregation.  You as
a member of this church are invited to participate in this effort.  Yes,
there will be ‘Techies’ on this committee, but don’t be intimidated by
this, we need your input.  The first meeting of this committee has
been scheduled for Sunday November 2nd at 11:30 AM after coffee
hour in the Chapel. If you have any questions contact Les Browne.
