CHRISTMAS CAROLING DOWNTOWN

The Outreach committee would like to organise one or two nights of caroling in the downtown area of Chiang Mai but we need YOUR help.

WHAT we will do: We will be walking (wear good walking shoes) and pause at certain points along the route to sing two or three Christmas carols, before moving on the next location.   We will be singing, and also handing out Christmas literature pertaining to Christmas, and inviting people we meet to attend Christmas worship services.

WHO we would like to join us:  Those with musical talent (especially guitar playing), those who enjoy singing, as well as those who enjoy interacting with people and sharing the Good News of Christmas.

WHERE we will go:  We will meet in front of  McDonalds at Tha Phae Gate, commence singing there, then move down Loi Kroh Road and finish at McDonald’s on Night Bazaar Road.

WHEN: Dates we are considering are Wednesday December 20, 2017 and/or Friday December 22, 2017.

TIME: meeting at 7 pm and finishing at 9:15 pm (approx.)

We will be making our decision on whether to do one night, two nights or not at all, based on your responses. So please make a definite commitment.

If you are interested in participating, please indicate which night (s) would suit you best and send a message to outreach@cmcchurch.org. Let us know if you can assist with playing a guitar.
