The Columbia Institute of Fine Arts presents First Light in a

contemplate the story of Jesus through Scripture and music, as
performed by this wonderful trio Alexandra Baldwin (harp),
Sharyn Byer (flute), and Claire Smith (flute). They will be joined by
Classical Guitarist, Scott Schwertfeger and Soprano, Andrea Hillard.

The concert will be held in the Hoge Chapel of Columbia Baptist Church.

Journey to Bethlehem 

Sundays, from November 30 through December 24
During the 4 weeks of the Advent Season, our Families at Columbia
