Insight Forum – Gospel Overture: The Christmas Story According to Matthew

The Rev. Dr. Russell C. Sullivan, Jr., Pastor, Pine Street Presbyterian Church

Themes found in the infancy narrative in Matthew are restated and reinforced throughout the body of the Gospel. As a result, the Christmas story can be understood as an overture to the Gospel, in much the same way that the music at the beginning of an opera introduces the themes that will be repeated in the body of the opera. Find out in Matthew’s version of Jesus’ birth what his main purpose is.

Presbyterian Apartments Carol Sing & Luncheon

Join Pine Street as we celebrate Christmas at Presbyterian Apartments. For more information or to sign up, please stop at the Welcome Center. The Carol Sing will start at 11:30 a.m.

Choirs

The musical ensembles at Pine Street present a broad mixture of classical, gospel, and even jazz every Sunday from September–May to help us lift our hearts and voices in praise to God. Rehearsing for two hours every Thursday evening, the choir’s dedication to great music in rehearsals, services, and performances, is inspirational to all who hear them.

The Church School Singers

Children in grades K through 5 are encouraged to make Church School Singers a part of their regular Church School experience each week. A group of dedicated adult volunteers rotate to teach the children our best-loved church and Bible songs, like Jesus Loves Me, Father Abraham, Hallelu Hallelu Hallelujah, and more. These songs were a part of many of our faith formation, teaching us about the church, the Bible, and the world. We want to pass these songs down to the next generation, so each teacher spends time each week making this music part of the children’s lives. All children are welcome!

Meets at 8:45 a.m.
Sunday Mornings

For Grades k-5

The Chancel Choir is Pine Street’s primary choral organization and leads worship each Sunday morning from September through May. They also lead special services such as the annual Christmas Music Sunday, Christmas Eve Candlelight Service, Ash Wednesday, Good Friday Tenebrae, Easter, and more. They often collaborate with other area choirs as well. They take on challenging repertoire that enhances worship at Pine Street each week. The Choir is like a family and have a lot of fun together, working on repertoire, vocal technique, musicianship, and spending time together outside of rehearsal as well.
