Abba’s House Joins With Bayside Baptist To Present Saviour Musical

Monday, April 1, 2013

Abba’s House is joining with Bayside Baptist Church for a musical presentation of Saviour on Sunday, April 14, at 6 p.m. in the auditorium of Abba’s House.

Saviour is a one hour, modern day oratorio about the biblical history of mankind, longing for their Messiah to come. It celebrates Jesus' coming, dying, and resurrection.  

An oratorio is a musical composition for voices and orchestra, telling a sacred story without costumes, scenery or dramatic action.

Featuring soloists from Bayside Baptist Church and Abba’s House, as well as a combined, auditioned choir of 70 people and a full symphony orchestra, this one hour presentation features some incredibly moving music, officials said. 

In addition to Ken Hartley, Abba’s House pastor of Worship, and Jamie Parker, minister of Worship at Bayside Baptist, Jim Whitmire will be a guest conductor for the evening. Mr. Whitmire served as minister of Music under Adrian Rogers at Bellevue Baptist in Memphis for over 30 years and was a mentor to both Mr. Hartley and Mr. Parker.

Admission is free and no tickets are required.  Abba’s House is at 5208 Hixson Pike, just north of Northgate Mall.


Eric Youngblood: When The Phone Is Like Kryptonite

“If Mad Men has taught me anything, it’s that phones are the worst.” Why would Sammy Rhodes say, sorry, “tweet” that? Don’t you know exactly what he means? And how come we break into exuberant elation on those rare moments when we’ve screwed up the courage to make a return phone call and it goes directly to voicemail?” What makes the Hallelujah chorus seem the ...

Steve Ellison: The Main Thing

We seem to have forgotten to keep the main thing in focus.  It seems to me that the most important command we have been given is found in Matthew 28:18-20 "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.  Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all ...

Thankful For The Vital Role Teachers Played In My Life

Re: Roy Exum: Teachers Day Tomorrow Roy, I am especially appreciative of your poignant column written in tribute to teachers.  It made me tear up, as I have encountered both as a student and a career educator-- teachers like the second-grade teacher who said, "I wish you were my little girl" and teachers like Mrs. Poindexter.   My teachers have played such a vital ...

Roy Exum: The DA’s Cold-Case Quest

It is clearly a job nobody can do for over an hour or two, but Neal Pinkston, working in hand with precise professionals from the county’s auditing department, is intent on doing the right thing. As I watched a revolving team of four people at a time open and study envelopes of autopsy photographs on Tuesday, the scene would have made a fascinating television documentary. But ...
