Local church remembers pastor through ‘Living Christmas Tree’ performance

(Greensboro) Friendly Avenue Baptist Church is mourning the loss of their pastor Dr. Pat Cronin.

A family visitation for Dr. Cronin will be held Wednesday, Dec. 7, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Friendly Avenue Baptist Church. A funeral service will be held Thursday, Dec. 8, at 11 a.m. at Friendly Avenue Baptist Church.

Cronin died suddenly early Sunday morning when he suffered a massive heart attack while driving he and his wife to their home in Oak Ridge from the airport. Cronin drove off the road and into a field after the heart attack. Cronin’s wife was not injured in the crash.  Church members learned the news this past Sunday morning.  Cronin became the pastor at Friendly Avenue Baptist church in 1995.  https://goo.gl/eHbMtZ

 

“Friendly Avenue Baptist Church presents their Living Christmas Tree” to honor the vision of Dr Pat Cronin…   Location: Four Seasons Town Centre this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the  amphitheater area of the mall. Shows will run every 45 minutes (lasting around 25 minutes). 

The back story: For 14 years Friendly Avenue Baptist Church hosted a “living Christmas tree,” made up of the church choir, accompanied by an orchestra, at their church building.  This year Pastor Cronin’s vision was to move the Christmas tree to the mall in order to let more people enjoy the music. The performances will go on as planned THIS weekend – honoring Cronin’s vision for ministering to the community.
