Worshipping the Lord through Handel's "Messiah"

Both the 9:00 and 11:15 Sanctuary Worship Services on December 14th were built around the rich and wholly-scriptural texts Handel set to music in his classic Messiah oratorio.  Listen and watch as the Sanctuary Choir was joined by the Alleluia Ensemble, a string quartet, and soloists Kim Taulbee, Melanie Frazier, Peggy Harvey and Sue Kimball to present selections of Part One of the piece, telling the story of Christ's coming that first Christmas, with the congregation participating through responsive reading, hymns, and prayers.  

If you've never experienced "Messiah" as the full narrative of Jesus' coming, or perhaps have never heard more than the Hallelujah chorus, prepare to join the story in a fresh way through this music.
