Handel’s Messiah, Part III: April 22

Join us for worship on Sunday, April 22 at 10:00 am for the Chancel Choir’s performance of Part III of G. F. Handel’s famous oratorio Messiah. Part III focuses on God’s resurrection promises and the resurrection of Jesus; it will be our primary form of proclamation during the service, which also includes scripture and communion. We look forward to this joyful and worshipful music for the Easter season.
