December 3 at 3 PM
Joy, Majesty, Awe – These are some of the words we may use to describe the sense of connection to God and the feeling of being part of something much greater than ourselves when we experience a live performance of Handel’s Messiah. Messiah United Methodist Church’s 28th season of presenting Part I of this glorious masterwork will be performed by the Messiah Community Chorus this coming December 3rd at 3 PM in our sanctuary, joined by professional orchestra and soloists. I invite you to be present as time stands still and we pause to mark the first Sunday of Advent by offering this musical gift to our community.
Our annual Handel’s Messiah budget is approximately $10,000. We rely on donations every year in order to fund the expense of our professional instrumentalists and vocalists, so that our music can be offered at the highest level possible. Any contribution amount is appreciated. In addition to this particular concert, our concert series “Music at Messiah” continues to grow. I ask you to prayerfully consider a supplemental donation to the overall concert series so that we can increase the reach of the performances we offer to the community.
