WOW Musical:
“The Night Shift Before Christmas”
       Most of us live and work and go to school in fairly “regular” surroundings.  The adage that important things happen to important people only in important places is not always true.  God has gone to great lengths to show the world that his heart is with those the world has forgotten - the people who are just going to work as we finish our day and put our heads on our pillows.
      The Savior of Mankind’s arrival late at night was announced to a group of night shift workers, a group of shepherds. He was born in a stable - a humble place in the village of Bethlehem. The musical is a light-hearted approach to the glorious birth of our savior.

SPECIAL MUSIC FOR OUR HOLIDAY BREAKFAST AND HYMN SING
      We are happy to announce that the Forest City String Band will be helping us celebrate our special holiday service on Sunday, December 30.  The FCSB was formed in 2010 primarily to play for worship services scheduled outdoors.  The band received a number of requests to play at more secular venues and has developed a playlist that includes songs from many different traditions, including popular music from the ‘50’s to the present and both black and white traditional gospel music. 
       The band’s style is predominantly “bluegrass” with banjo, fiddle, guitar and bass based in the Cleveland Oh area.   Brit Stenson plays banjo and played in a professional band after graduating from University of Virginia.  He currently designs golf courses.  Reed Simon plays the fiddle in almost any style you want and teaches at Notre Dame College in South Euclid OH.  Bo Shiverick (Missy’s husband) has played the guitar since high school and tries both finger-picking and flatpicking styles.  He currently runs a small manufacturing business.  Lloyd Bell plays the bass and the band is continually challenging him to expand his styles, but he maintains he has had his own style since high school and doesn’t see any reason to change.  Lloyd currently manages business deals for a major accounting firm.  Alana Andrews adds vocals and harmony and sings with the St. Paul's Church choir in Westerville OH.  She also teaches at Ursuline College in Pepper Pike OH when she is not singing.
