Each December thousands of churches give special performances for Christmas such as carols, bell choirs, and live nativities. In recent years, it has been popular to perform Trans-Siberian Orchestra songs and “drummer boy” solos (often with trash cans). If you want some fresh and early creative inspiration for your 2010 Christmas church service, here are three of the most creative church Christmas performances of 2009.
GRANGER COMMUNITY CHURCH (Granger, IN)
For the first 4 weeks of December, Granger Community Church had A Christmas Carol-themed sermon series. They created an ingenious musical tie-in by rewriting the words to “Carol of the Bells” to tell the tale of Scrooge.
ONEIGHTY VARSITY (Tulsa, OK)
NORTH POINT COMMUNITY CHURCH (Atlanta, GA)
North Point Community Church performed Christmas carols with a multi-site twist – 3 campuses (with 4 stages) gave a synchronized Christmas performance and traded off performing via satellite feed.
