Advent Organ recitals return in December! Brian and Rick will once again present a half hour Advent organ concert. Come and join these quiet reflective moments of beautiful music!
Advent Vespers will be sung on Sunday, December 16 at 6:00 p.m. This joyous annual service includes Bach’s Cantata 61 “Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland,” performed by our Bach Choir and Orchestra. Other motets by Johann Michael Bach, Felix Mendelssohn, and Rick Erickson will be sung, as well as beloved hymns and organ music! This Vespers will be presented in loving memory of Mel Rosenbaum. At the conclusion of Vespers, a name plaque will be dedicated in memory of Dr. Albert LeDoux in the Columbarium. Albert formerly served as Artistic Director of Bach Society Houston and Choir Director of Christ the King Lutheran Church. This Vespers is always a highlight of the season. All are welcome!
Wednesday, December 19, 6:30 p.m.
Join us at 6:30 p.m. in the nave for a service of hope and comfort on December 19. This meditative service gives us time for remembering, sharing our hurting places with God, and preparing our hearts for the coming of Christ. Join others for whom the Christmas season is bittersweet to hear scripture, offer prayers for healing and wholeness, and to sing hymns that acknowledge God’s presence with those who mourn and grieve, with those who suffer, and with those who struggle. God is the light shining in our darkness.
All are welcome! The service will be followed by a brief time for light refreshments and fellowship.
