Coming this Sunday

  • Worship Service Sunday, December 15th, 2019 Dec 15, 2019, 10:30 am - 11:30 am
    Worship Leader: Rev Anne Mason

    Searching for the Peaceable Kingdom.

    The season of Advent calls us to prepare our hearts, our homes, and our spirits for the coming celebration. What does it look like for you, to truly prepare? What room must you create in yourself, to be ready to experience the hope of Solstice and the joy of Christmas? Come join Rev. Anne as we take this holy time together.

    Music for this Sunday

    This Sunday, the sanctuary choir will sing Felix Mendelsohn’s beautiful chorus “Behold a Star from Jacob Shining” (from Christus). Soloists David Meharry and Nate Ramsayer will also sing a 12th-c. French motet “Veni, Veni Emmanuel” (the oldest version of “O Come, o come Emmanuel”). For the centering music and postlude, Rip Jackson will play on the organ J.S. Bach’s bold “Wachet Auf, Ruft uns die Stimme,” BWV 645 (from the Schübler Chorales) and Louis-Claude Daquin’s joyful “À la venue de Noël” (from Livre de Noëls).
