St. John's Majesty Choir Easter Cantata April 22/23

On the Weekend of April 22/23, 2017, St. John's Majesty Choir presents their 2017 Easter Cantata, "Praise the God of Resurrection," during St. John's Worship Services (Saturday 5 PM, Sunday 8:30 & 11 AM). This cantata traverses the breadth of human emotion found in the passion story of our Lord. From hours of solitude and rejection to glorious alleluias, the pervading theme is that ultimately God is in control. Walking through the last days of Jesus' earthly life, this cantata is a moving reminder of the power of the living God. Blending scripture and inspired music, this work will remind you that Christ is Risen! Christ is Risen Indeed! Alleluia!

Easter Vigil service will be held at 5 PM on Saturday at our regular weekend worship time, as we gather in the Fellowship Hall, process through our upper level to remember God's people wondering in the desert, the lighting of candles, reading of Scripture, baptism and welcoming of new members, and celebration of the Lord's Supper.
