Christmas Eve 2013 at HopePark an enjoyable music performance

Christmas Eve at HopePark Church in Nashville's Bellevue community took place on Tues., Dec. 24, at 1, 3, and 5pm. A friend and I visited the last service although we both felt "performance" was a better description than "worship service."

A gorgeous Christmas stage was adorned with multiple Christmas trees, cascading greenery and lights, and a wreath hung above the stage. It was a beautiful sight.

The music was loud and rockin' -- a combination of pop, rock and bluegrass with a very little traditional thrown in for good measure. A full band performed with multiple singers. It looked like about 25 musicians on stage for the performance. There was a lot of applause from the enthusiastic crowd following most of the songs with "woots" and "woos" hollered during some.

The message by pastor David Perez was a timely reminder of how light affects us and that not only can a road be lighted but burdens can also be lightened.

The promotion online promised the evening would "celebrate the birth of hope, the gift of faith, and the peace of God's love," and the evening did all three. The performances were celebratory, the message was one of faith and the candle lighting and singing of "Silent Night" was peaceful. Any visiter expecting to be entertained by a lively performance surely left happy. However, those hoping to celebrate the season worshipping and singing some of their favorite carols left a little empty.
