Lenten Cantata

Lenten Cantata

SUN MAR 24  ♦ 8:30 and 10:00 AM A JOURNEY TO HOPE in the Roser Sanctuary. This cantata, written by Joseph Martin, is musically inspired by traditional spirituals and tells of the ministry, passion and resurrection of Jesus through familiar, repurposed tunes, narration and scriptures. From the rhythmic vitality of Ride On, King Jesus to the languishing strains of They Crucified My Lord, from the stately dignity of Give Me Jesus to the festive joy of Great Day, this work delivers both ministry and artistry.

SUN APR 14  ♦ 8:30 and 10:00 AM PALM SUNDAY in the Roser Sanctuary.
Everyone will receive a Palm Cross as they leave! The crosses are hand-woven by villagers near Masasi, Tanzania. They are made from dried leaves of the dwarf palm, and last a lifetime. Father Talbot, an Anglican priest observed the poverty of the people and sought ways for them to increase their income. He encouraged the villagers to begin weaving palm crosses to sell to churches for use on Palm Sunday. Net proceeds from the sale of crosses are used to help meet basic human needs such as clean drinking water, HIV/AIDS education, fighting hunger, and farming ventures. Since its inception, African Palms USA has awarded over $2 million to African communities. For more information about the crosses please go to www.africanpalmsusa.org.

There will be an anointing with oil for self or for others for physical, emotional or spiritual healing.

FRI APR 19 ♦  7:00 PM GOOD FRIDAY SERVICE in the Roser Sanctuary.
For six hours on a Friday over 2,000 years ago, Jesus suffered and died for the sins of the world, forever bridging the gap between ourselves and God. Come worship with us as we remember the death of our Lord and Savior through the songs, sights, and sounds of The Passion. The service will feature the Contemporary Ensemble of piano, guitar, bass, percussion and vocalists. Come and experience a whole new worship style.
