The Chancel Choir of Palmyra United Methodist Church would like to share their Christmas cantata “Emmanuel: God With Us” with the Palmyra community, with a special presentation Saturday, Dec. 14, at 5 p.m. in addition to their normal presentation Sunday, Dec. 15, at 8 a.m. 

Based on the old tradition of carols and readings, a cantata is a program of Christmas songs linked together with a narrative that retells the Christmas story.   

This year’s cantata “Emmanuel” features both traditional and contemporary Christmas songs.
