First Baptist Church of Woodstock

Sounds of the Season

By Anna Teal


Everywhere we look, there are signs of the season. From elaborately decorated houses to magical downtown parades to those who unselfishly find ways to give back to others in need, the holidays tend to bring out the best in people. Even with all the sparkly fanfare, we sometimes find ourselves looking for deeper ways to get into the spirit. So, we seek out local events to expose our hearts to the real meaning of the season.

For those pining for such an experience, look no further than First Baptist Church of Woodstock’s Sounds of the Season concert. Get swept up in the beautiful melodies of Christmas and the sweet sounds of children joining in to gleefully serenade the audience with familiar holiday carols that bring joy to all.


Family Friendly Entertainment

First Baptist Church of Woodstock is no stranger to performing for Cherokee County and the Woodstock community. This fourth annual concert will be held on December 10 and 11 at 6:00pm and will be filled with songs that appeal to all generations. Year after year, there’s always a tremendous outpouring from the community, saying the event exceeded expectations.

“We are blessed to have a whole host of talented volunteers of all ages that make this concert possible,” says Worship Pastor Cliff Duren.


An Immersive Experience

From the moment visitors come through the doors, they will sense the spirit of Christmas in the air. As they enter the beautifully decorated lobby area, families can have their picture taken in a photo booth to document the special night.

After photos, visitors will enter the auditorium to take their seats before the show begins.

“Our goal is to tug on all the senses. Our guests will hear solo artists, young students leading and performing, see amazing visual effects, and a huge LED wall to keep the kiddos engaged. It’s designed to be a fully immersive experience,” says Duren.

All attendees will be enchanted by a captivating 50-piece orchestra, led by Instrumental Associate Worship Pastor Trey Tanner, and a 200-voice choir anchors the entire event. The Woodstock Kids Worship Choir also makes an appearance, joyfully celebrating Christ’s birth through song. Later in the program, marvel at the live nativity scene, which has become a favorite over the years.

Executive Paster of Ministry Matt Lawson speaks fondly about his first time seeing the concert.

“I experienced Sounds of the Season for the first time last year. I wish I had known how awesome it was going to be because I would have invited my entire neighborhood! All my neighbors will get an invite this year!”

The entire show lasts 75 minutes, and the pace moves quickly, making it ideal for young families. And the best part is it’s free for all to attend.
