Special Music for Advent

December 12, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am

On Sunday, December 12, during our 10am worship service, the Chancel Choir, soloists, and chamber orchestra will present one of Johann Sebastian Bach’s most popular cantatas, “Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme” (Sleepers Wake, a Voice Astounds Us). This Advent cantata is based on the parable of the wise and foolish virgins who await the arrival of the bridegroom (metaphorically, Christ), as recounted in Matthew 25. Bach’s music speaks to us across the centuries with a vibrancy and freshness that transcends time.

A Special Music Offering will be received to support this presentation, which also receives support from the Lois V. Parker Special Music Fund. Register for worship to be with us in person, or join us online, for this very special seasonal music presentation.
