Palm Sunday, March 25, 10am - Choir Cantata
The annual Choir Cantata will be performed during the service on March 25, and we are really excited for this year's program, Come to the Cross and Remember. Christ's journey to the cross is filled with images of His sacrificial love for us: the Palms, the Cup and the Bread, the Nails, the Crown of Thorns, and more. These images form the centerpiece of Come to the Cross and Remember. The choral and congregational music will explore these themes as we visually create a tableau symbolic of Christ's sacrifice for us. Haunting, transportive, majestic, and familiar melodies, along with a moving narration, will be an inspirational way to start Holy Week, and we encourage everyone to join us.
