I know you have been waiting for the Christmas Cantata date this year! J – Sunday, December 16 at 9am and 10:45am in our Center of Compassion building.
Please participate in this year’s Christmas Cantata and please spread the word. We want to reach everyone who sang with us last year and as many other singers as possible for this beautiful Cantata! All I ask is that, if you are serious about your participation, attend rehearsals and practice a little bit on your own. I assure you that if you commit to eleven weeks of singing in the cantata, you will get hooked! The fellowship and enjoyment of participating in the cantata comes mainly during the rehearsals. J Here are the rehearsal dates: 7-8:30p.m. in the sanctuary
Thursdays, October 4, 11, 18, 25, November 1, 8, 15, Monday-19, Thursday 29, Monday, Dec. 3, Thursday, Dec. 13 & Saturday, Dec. 15 (dress rehearsal from 9am to 12pm in COC). These dates are coming quickly and we need to put them on the calendar now. Music will be distributed at the Oct. 4th rehearsal at 7pm in the sanctuary.
I look forward to having you sing with us this year! If you have any questions, contact me at 480-832-2449 or

Please start thinking about the Music Dinner and Auction on December 6. If you are cleaning out drawers or closets and find any really nice things that you may want to part with, save them in a special spot to donate to the auction!!
We would truly appreciate it ………..we count on our earnings from that event to help out with our music expenses. You might be happy that in return you have an empty closet! If you are a craft person or like to make things, we’d love to have your contributions for the auction. Thanks! Jung Csuy
Christmas is around the corner and so is the annual Music Ministry Christmas Dinner. Mark your calendars for Thursday, Dec. 6 at 6pm in the COC. We are trying a different, more relaxing approach this year, so no table hosts are needed. We will still have the wonderful band, Titanium, whose line-up includes crowd-favorite oldies, Christmas songs and a medley of Queen hits. The band will be joined this year by our Master of Ceremonies, Tom Osterman, who will serenade us with his well-known impersonations of Neil Diamond, Nat King Cole, and more. Together they will rock the place and provide an evening of top-notch entertainment!
Besides the entertainment, the night will include a wonderful catered dinner, our annual silent auction and we're adding in raffle items, too. It's a great opportunity to bring together the whole family and include your friends and neighbors! Ticket sales will begin November 4th (after each service) and prices are very affordable: $20 per person, $40 per couple, or $50 per family. Look for us each week until the day of the event.
Beyond buying a ticket or two or reserving a table, how can you help? We are looking for volunteers to help the night of the event and also need silent auction donations! Maybe you have a cabin you would donate as a weekend get-away, or you may be a world class chef who can donate a homemade gourmet dinner or you may be an arts & crafts pro who assembles a themed basket full of great things. We appreciate anything you have to offer. Please contact Ginny Williams at 602-818-8156 or via email at to sign up as a volunteer, donate auction items or with any questions. Sign-up sheets for volunteers are already available on the ministry tables.
The music ministry team relies on this fundraiser so they are able to continue providing great music for LOC's congregation. Our sincerest thanks to everyone for helping to make this a five-star event.
Friday, January 18, 2019 is a date you must mark in your calendar… right now! We have the extraordinary privilege of hosting the Phoenix Opera here in our CoC. They will be performing “Love Always, Lenny” a musical celebration in honor of the 100th Anniversary of the birth of Leonard Bernstein. Some of his music that you may be familiar with is: West Side Story, On the Town and Candide, as well as songs by Gershwin and Copland, who inspired and influenced Bernstein’s compositions. I feel pretty, I’ve got Rhythm, Summertime, Maria and so much more, including narration and anecdotes by Metropolitan Opera’s Gail Dubinbaum, a favorite Mezzo-Soprano of Maestro Bernstein.
This is a perfect opportunity to enjoy a fabulous evening of wonderful music. You won’t have to go to Phoenix, pay for parking and walk to the opera house. You can wear fancy clothing or be casual! Our parking lot is FREE!! You can enjoy refreshments at intermission and chat with your friends. You can enrich your soul with this beautiful music in the comfort of Love of Christ Church, something you shouldn’t pass up.
Ticket sales start on Sunday, Dec. 2 after each service.
$18 per adult, $10 per child (9 years old and above) and $25 at the door (January 18, 2019)
