Getting a Handel on the Messiah
We begin by gathering at 6:00 pm to share a meal together, which will be followed by a programs for all age groups at 6:45 pm. All adults will be welcomed to the main sanctuary for a special series, “Getting a Handel on the Messiah,” taught by Fr Jim McCaslin (more information below). All youth ages five and above will gather in the Cranmer Fellowship room on the second floor (more information below). Children under the age of 5 are invited to our Nursery, which is located on the ground floor of our new building. The study programs will finish up around 7:45 pm. For those who would like to explore the gift and beauty of music, our Music Director, Rebecca Stevens, will be offering opportunities for you as well (more information below). Come join us as we grow in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ together.
More than 250 years ago in 18th century England, two gifted and talented Anglican Christians were inspired by God to create what would turn out to be a musical classic of praise and adoration for God’s Messiah, Jesus, the One who was and is and is to come. We call this classic simply Handel’s Messiah.
Join us on Wednesday evenings as we explore the origin, background, and Scriptural foundation for this anointed and inspirational Gospel Oratorio. The Messiah has been performed every year since 1742, and its popularity is now unprecedented. Not only will we look at the Biblical texts that make up this masterpiece, but also we’ll hear selections from the Messiah and even join in singing along with some of them.
Upstairs in the Cranmer Fellowship Room our youth will enjoy their own time of study, fellowship, and fun. This time will be led by Chris McCarthy and Jen Crews and will allow our older youth to help guide and teach our younger children in the truth of God and His Holy Word. Parents may drop their children off just prior to 6:45 pm and pick them up at 7:45 pm. Please contact Chris McCarthy (904-885-6478) if you have any further questions.
Our Music Director, Rebecca Stevens, would love to work with you and help you to develop your singing voice. If you are interested in working on your musical gift, please contact Rebecca and let her know. There will also be an opportunity for those who would like to help volunteer with our audio ministry to come and learn more about how our systems work.
