Special Evening Worship featuring the music of Bach on April 22 at 4 pm
On April 22 at 4 pm, we come to the close of a year that has celebrated the 500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation. What better way to celebrate than in a special evening Vespers service!
Johann Sebastian Bach used his outstanding musical gifts to express the human condition and communicate God’s love and grace. He is most known for his work in Leipzig, Germany at the St. Thomas and St. Nicholas churches every single Sunday in morning worship and in a Sunday evening Vespers service. In both contexts, he composed a cantata for singers and orchestra that was based on the Scripture verses for the Sunday. Adult Choir, organ, orchestra, and soloists will sing Cantata 112, based on Psalm 23. The Youth Choir and ChildrenSong will also join us and sing works by other Lutheran composers. At the end, all choirs will sing The Lord Bless You and Keep You.
Regardless of your spiritual background, come be refreshed and nourished through this transformative experience. Join us for an inspiring musical and spiritual end to the season and a post-service reception.
