On Good Friday, April 14th, the Christ Choir of Christ Lutheran Church will perform the Good Friday cantata, “The Rose of Calvary” written by Joseph M. Martin. This Tenebrae includes choral music, hymns, narration, readings, and congregation participation.
The image of a sacred flower, a divine rose, from heaven’s own garden blooming in the shadows of our world is a portrait of hope and comfort. This Tenebrae is of God’s tender love song reminding us that we are all children of the garden. The music of one truly perfect rose who, choosing grace, died for His beloved thorns.
Noah’s Nursery is in need of volunteers during the Sunday 9:30 a.m. service. The nursery is open to all infants and children through the age of 3. If you are interested in volunteering in the nursery, please contact Jennifer Herrmann at 708- 268-4496 or email@example.com.
