The talent kept coming inside a packed venue in celebration of the season at the Fort St. James Evangelical Free Church.

On Dec. 13, a community Christmas concert was held for the entire community. All were invited to share in a variety of festive performances.

Laura Campbell helped prepare for the evening. “Such a variety of people came out tonight. It was a great turnout,” Campbell said.

Campbell also performed and sang a memorable rendition of Oh Holy Night, alongside Jen Duncan.

All took part in singing carols. A live nativity, a kid’s choir, a homeschool band and various readings added to the festive spirit.

The Duncan Family ended the evening with an unforgettable performance of Hope Was Born This Night, Come Now Our King.

The evening’s reflections reminded everyone of the true meaning of Christmas, the importance of family and an appreciation for the many talents that were brought together in celebration of a most holy night.
