The choir of the Church of All Saints, 21 North Cleveland St., McAdoo, along with some other members of the parish, have been preparing a special work by Randy Vader, Jay Rouse and Rose Aspinall, entitled "Come, Messiah King.

This cantata shares the Christmas story as if one were celebrating Christmas for the very first time. The work is a Christmas prayer and celebration.

The cantata takes place at 9 p.m. Christmas Eve, followed by the Christmas Liturgy at 10 p.m.

The celebration will take place again at 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 5.
