Please join us on Palm Sunday for the Chancel Choir's Annual Easter Cantata.  It will be perfomed at our Late Worship service (10:30 am). Pepper explains the premise of the cantata this way- “Christ’s journey to the cross is filled with images that serve as vivid reminders of His sacrificial love for us.  These images are the centerpiece of Come to the Cross and Remember.”  I chose this particular cantata because there are a lot of unique and thought provoking songs, among them, the songs “Judas” and “You Will Be with Me in Paradise”.  We feature several solos and duets in the presentation so I thank the choir in advance for agreeing to take on the challenge.  I hope you “enjoy” the cantata as much as we have enjoyed preparing for it.  The Sunday School children will also be “waving palm branches” and singing.  So lots of music to enjoy on Palm Sunday.
