Jazz Nativity returns to The Community Church of Mountain Lakes on December 11th at 4:00 pm. Last year’s Jazz Nativity was well loved, so Jazz Nativity returns with a new story, The First Noel. The First Noel: a Jazz Nativity is a creative retelling of the Christmas narrative through jazz and storytelling. It will feature Moments Notice, a jazz ensemble of local musicians affiliated with Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ, as well as characters from the Christmas story who will share their personal takes on the old, old story. Jazz Nativity is offered as a free community program for the holidays. It is suitable for families with children as well as adults of all ages. A reception will follow the program. The Community Church of Mountain Lakes is located at 48 Briarcliff Road in Mountain Lakes, New Jersey and is a member congregation of the United Church of Christ.
