On Sunday, March 26th during our 9:30 am worship service our Chancel Choir will present their annual Lenten Cantata. Always a meaningful part of the Lenten season, you’ll want to invite your family and friends to hear our Chancel Choir, soloists, organist/pianist and an instrumental ensemble. We hope you are able to attend in person or watch us online!
Our cantatas, a pairing of both sung and spoken word always have a theme. This year’s Lenten cantata continues to explore some of the more than two hundred different names given to Jesus in the Bible. In our Christmas Cantata we focused on the names given to Jesus before and at the time of his birth and Sunday’s Lenten Cantata will focus on the names given to Jesus throughout his earthly ministry.
Various composers throughout history have understood the scriptural significance of Jesus’ many names and have included them in their compositions. We’ll have an early prelude beginning at 9:15 am, and we’ll be singing selections from Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, John Rutter’s Requiem and Handel’s Messiah as well as songs and spirituals by Dan Forrest, Moses Hogan, Lloyd Larson, Twila Paris, Dottie Rambo, Michael John Trotta, and Robert Ray, all highlighting Jesus’ many names and what power these names hold for us in our daily lives.
Come hear the scripture, the message and the good news of the gospel set to music as we focus on Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
