The Twelve Days of Christmas come to life at the fifteenth annual “Pies and Pipes” performance, when five area bagpipers perform Christmas music and traditional Scottish and Irish bagpipe tunes in the Sanctuary of the Bethlehem Lutheran Church.
With their deep, resonant tones, the sound of a Scottish bagpipe is a great accompaniment to the holiday season. It alludes to long held traditions and reminds us of Christmas rituals passed down to us through generations of our own families. Served up with a slice of homemade pie and a warm cup of coffee, it’s a great way to continue the celebration of this magical season.
The pipers performing this year come from Trego and our surrounding counties, including the minister of the Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Pastor Randy Gibbs. He describes the event as, “A fun and different way to get into the Christmas celebration, with Celtic flare.” Afterwards, join all the pipers and the families of the Bethlehem Lutheran congregation for pie and coffee in the Fellowship Hall, located in the church’s basement. It’s sure to be the very best way to come in from the cold on a wintery December day!
Save the date Sunday, December 13th for the fifteenth annual “Pies and Pipes” concert at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church on 7th St. and Easter Ave in WaKeeney. The performance will begin at 2pm, the perfect time to see the sun illuminate the church’s beautiful stained glass windows. The pie and coffee service will commence after the performance and the event is open to the public. All you’ll need to bring is your Christmas spirit!
