Progressive Christmas Concert


Mark your calendars for our annual Progressive Christmas Concert Friday, December 13, 2019, 7pm-9:15pm!

A walking event, stopping in three Uptown churches – Church of the Master, Church of the Messiah, and First Presbyterian Church – all within about a block of each other.

Ticket holders attend a short concert in each of the three churches and are led to the next by costumed guides with lanterns. It’s a great way to get into the holiday spirit, see beautifully decorated historic churches, and hear great music provided by the choirs and musicians of our member churches.

Tickets are just $10 ($11 online) and can be purchased at:
