Choir Cantata – The Liturgical Year
Everyone is invited to the annual Choir Cantata, presented by The KPC Adult Choir directed by Jean Volk, on May 5th, during the 11:00 AM worship service. The theme of the Cantata and the entire worship service is “The Liturgical Year” beginning with Advent. The cantata along with Bible verses indicative of the theme will comprise the worship message. The worship hymns will also reflect the theme. Pastor Sharyl Dixon accompanied by KPC Seminary Interns, Margaret Poteet and Tony Loreti, will provide the Bible readings between cantata selections.
The choir will begin the worship theme for the day with the Choral Prelude, Call to Advent, by J. Jerome Williams, to represent the first period of the Liturgical Year.
