First Baptist

First Baptist Church Huntsville presents the 35th anniversary performances of “The Living Christmas Tree” on Thursday, Dec. 19, through Sunday, Dec. 22.

This event has become a treasured holiday tradition in the Tennessee Valley, attracting thousands of people to attend each year. First Baptist Church Huntsville presents “The Living Christmas Tree” every year with no admission charge. It is their gift to the community. More than 200 performers come together to create a one-of-a-kind performance, featuring a full orchestra, dancers and a multi-generational vocal choir assembled on a structure filling the front of their sanctuary.

This year’s feature performer is Heather Sorenson, a nationally-known performer, composer, producer, educator and publisher. Heather has performed at the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Carnegie Hall and Constitution Hall. She’s also served as adjunct professor at Baylor University in Texas.

The theme of this year’s performance is “Light and Life to All He Brings” – a celebration of light, and The Light of the World, Jesus Christ. The media ministry of First Baptist Church Huntsville is preparing to unveil a spectacular light show, in addition to the thousands of lights on the tree structure itself. From their bell tower to their sanctuary, the church will be celebrating with all things light.
