Thomaston Baptist Church, 212 Main St./Route 1, will present the annual Living Christmas Tree performance Saturday, Dec. 7, at 6 p.m.; Sunday, Dec. 8, at 4 p.m.; and Monday, Dec. 9, at 7 p.m.

This year’s concert features “Journey of Promises,” a cantata by composer and arranger Joseph M. Martin and Brant Adams.  The narration, traditional carols and new anthems trace the story of the birth of the Christ child.

The Living Christmas Tree comprises community members from the Midcoast region, who come together to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas in song. The choir is directed by Rebecca Leonard and accompanied by Sybil Wentworth on piano and Tracie Payor on keyboard. The sound manager is Frank Willis.

An elevator service is available for those who are not able to climb the steps into the sanctuary. With advance notice, there can be an assured space for a limited number of wheelchairs. Assistance is available for anyone needing help getting up and down the church stairs. Doors will open one hour before the concert begins.

The concert is free and open to the public. For those who wish to make a donation, there will be baskets by the entrance. All donations are used to support the costs of the annual Living Christmas Tree performances.
