Primera Baptist Church has been hosting Christmas performances for years, decades even, but this year it literally starts with a bang—a drummer’s solo leading into a rendition of the “Little Drummer Boy.”
Pastor Eli Sanchez said the goal is to have a Christmas party, not another program.
“We wanted to make it fun, but we also wanted to have a message,” he said.
Church leaders recruited talent from across the congregation, and the result is heavy on percussion with three drummers who dominate the party, an adult choir and dancing children. The entire church is represented well, Sanchez said, which reflects their stance that church is for everyone.
