Change for 2021

This beloved tradition returns this year on Sunday, December 5th at 3:00 p.m. There is a streamlining of the program this year. We will just sing the Christmas portion of this great work and end with the Hallelujah Chorus. Donna Banes will conduct, with Glenn Rodgers at the organ. In place of the reception typically held during an intermission, we will be offering ‘to go’ snack bags. We would love your help in providing cookies or brownies for those who attend. If you would like to help, please bag your goodies in individual portions and drop them off at the church kitchen Saturday, December 4th at noon. Any questions contact Donna Banes by email donna@meewithGod.com or 856-222-9369.

What is this “Messiah Sing” anyway?

It’s like a hymn-sing, only to music by Handel. Handel’s Messiah is a cantata which tells the story of humankind’s redemption by our Saviour using selected scripture from the Old and New Testaments set to uplifting and memorable music.  The very famous “Hallelujah Chorus” is part of Handel’s Messiah.

There are several interesting things which make this church’s Messiah-Sing unique. Every person who attends is welcome to sing as much or as little as they feel comfortable – even the parts which are supposed to be sung by a soloist. (There aren’t any featured soloists). We don’t rehearse or stop and “correct” anything – we just sing.

It has to be experienced. Come and bring someone with you.
