The community is invited to the Red Oak Christmas Singing Jubilee on Saturday evening, Dec. 8, and the second Saturday evening each month.

“Soloists and singing groups, bring your instruments, music tracks and friends to Divine Hope Family Church in Red Oak, located at 620 Red Oak Road, just one block east of I-35,” a spokesman said. “Praise dancers and skits are welcome too. Admission is free and open to the public. Door prizes are awarded and snacks are served with lots of wonderful music and singing. Everything is free. This is our special ‘Happy birthday, Jesus’ celebration.”

The music begins at 6 p.m. and continues until 8:30. It is not necessary for singers to reserve in advance, but sign in on arrival. Display space is available for sale of each group’s CDs.

“We are so pleased to present the Red Oak Christmas Singing Jubilee each month,” hostess Darlene Jones said. “We have some awesome singers and musicians who will bless your hearts. This month, we’re celebrating ‘Jesus - The Reason for the Season.’ ”

“We believe God is pleased and the spiritual character of our community is strengthened when Christians from various churches come together with singing, laughter and praising,” pastor Rod Howell said. “We love the Lord and we still say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ ”
