Thanksgiving Sunday Celebration
Sunday, November 23
“What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
by any other name would smell as sweet.”
(from William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”)
The power of a name and its value has long been immortalized in prose, poetry, and religious ceremony. Everyone recognizes himself or herself by name. On Sunday, November 23 (the Sunday BEFORE Thanksgiving) the Chancel Choir will present our Thanksgiving worship celebration on the name of JESUS, the “Name Above All Names.” The Chancel Choir, supported by piano, organ, solo violin, Jubilate Ringers and our Brass Ensemble will present this year’s Thanksgiving service presenting music on the name of Jesus. The final hymn for this service says it all…
“At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow,
every tongue confess him King of Glory now.
‘Tis the father’s pleasure we should call Him Lord,
who from the beginning was the mighty word!”
Much of the music selected for this service is based on familiar hymn tunes and familiar hymn texts. You will want to make sure that you are seated for the opening Prelude, “Come, Glory in His Name” which will begin our celebration with the sounds of piano, bells, organ, brass, choir and YOU. We hope that you and your family will plan now to join us for this festive Thanksgiving celebration on Sunday, November 23rd at either the 9:00 or 11:00 worship service.
