First Sunday of Advent-- December 3 Cantata

December 3, 2017

Description: Worship on December 3, the first Sunday in Advent, will feature a cantata by J.S. Bach for choir, soloists, and orchestra. Based on the hymn "Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme," usually translated in hymnals as "Wake, Awake, for night is flying," the cantata depicts the coming Christ as a bridegroom, arriving for a wedding feast. Like many Advent hymns, the theme can be taken as not only preparing for Jesus' incarnation at Christmas, but also his return at the second coming. This twenty-minute work, presented at both services, will be sung in English, and the service will include Holy Communion, a meditation from Pastor Bill, and also the first week our sanctuary is decorated for the coming Christmas season.
Location: FPLC
Time: Both 9:00 and 10:30am worship services
