Eastwood Christian Church - Nashville, TN
Sermons, music and other highlights from worship services at Eastwood Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), located at 1601 Eastwood Avenue, Nashville, Tennessee.

Friends, we are very pleased to share this recording from our first-ever second Christmas Eve service of Lessons and Carols - featuring bluegrass music and lessons from the Cotton Patch Gospels.  What a celebration! 

Because of technical challenges we did not not quite get the entire service recorded - but we came close!  The recording begins with the first hymn and concludes with a solo of "O Holy Night," presented during communion. 

We owe a huge thanks to everyone who helped make this service possible. Our Music Director Julie Duemler created the service.  For Music we owe a huge thanks to our musicians: Stuart Duncan, John and Rebecca Frazier, Ketch Secor, Jonell Mosser, Dieta Duncan, and Julie Duemler.  For Word, we thank our Lesson readers: Shelley Freeman, William Aaron, Susan McBride, Bob Frech, Steve Walls, Steve Dickerson, and Julie Duemler.  

And there are, of course, so many others who worked to make this special evening possible. We are thankful for every member of our loving community!  

We hope this recording brings you all of the joy and love from our celebration!
