Jazz Nativity 2018

Can you believe that I have been blogging about our church’s JAZZ NATIVITY for 8 YEARS now?! 8 YEARS. That just blows my mind. I couldn’t remember all of the songs that I’ve sung if I tried! It all seems like a beautiful blur. This has been one of my favorite traditions since Michael and I got married. If you’re thinking this is your standard church “Christmas program”, think again! Jazz Nativity is far from anything you’ve probably ever seen a church do during Christmas season… especially a church in the suburbs!

Jazz Nativity 2017

If you have been following our journey for any length of time, you knew that this post was coming!!! I’ve been a part of Jazz Nativity at our church for SIX YEARS!! I sadly had to skip it in 2013 because we had booked a destination wedding outside of the country that weekend. That Christmas season just didn’t seem the same! There is something about Jazz Nativity that officially begins the Christmas season for us! This year was the TENTH anniversary of JAZZ NATIVITY and it was year to be remembered! I think it’s safe to say that this was one of my favorite songs that I have been able to be a part of!

Jazz Nativity 2016

  • Our Annual Jazz Concert!

This was my FIFTH year of being a part of JAZZ NATIVITY! Now before I continue, let me explain… this isn’t a nativity reenactment! We always seem to confuse people with that! This is a CHRISTMAS JAZZ CONCERT! It started ten years ago, and it has grown every year since! We now have FIVE shows, over 2 hours of numbers, professional lighting teams, Starbucks on-site sponsoring the event, and a total attendance of over 2000 people! It is QUITE a production!
