Calvary Temple this week is presenting the Singing Christmas Tree production entitled, The Light Still Shines.

The presentations begin on Thursday, December 6 and run until Sunday, December 9.

Pastor Gary Jennings says the production takes a lot of planning, volunteers and community members to make the production a success.

“The Singing Christmas Tree has been a part of Brandon and the surrounding communities Christmas Tradition since 1974. Calvary Temple is excited to carry on this tradition again year. The choir consists of 50 adults and 45 children.”

That choir has people from 13 different churches.

With various colored lights strategically nestled within the boughs of the artificial 30 foot tree, it will be a spectacular sight to see. And with the festive seasonal blend of the choir singing in four part harmony, it will be an inspirational sound to hear. The choir will sing a total of 11 songs with live drama woven through the musical numbers.

Doors open one hour before each presentation.

The Singing Christmas Tree presentation itself lasts about 1½ hours.

“No tickets are needed but there will be a free-will offering taken to help cover costs. 10% percent of all offerings received will be given to the Westman Traditional Christmas Dinner. Calvary Temple also asks those attending to bring non-perishable food items for the Brandon Helping Hands Soup Kitchen.”

Presentation dates and times are as follows:

Thursday, December 6th 7:00 pm
Friday, December 7th 7:00 pm
Saturday, December 8th 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm
Sunday, December 9th 10:00 am and 3:00 pm
