First-Centenary UMC Presents "Requiem" This Sunday

Wednesday, March 26, 2014
The Chancel Choir and 14-piece Chamber Orchestra at First-Centenary United Methodist Church, 410 McCallie Ave., will present "Requiem" by John Leavitt as part of the 10:45 a.m. sanctuary worship service this Sunday.

" The musical settings range from lyrical to rhythmic. Dr. Doug Fairbanks will speak at the service, and at 8:30 a.m., on "The Enlightened Ones," with text from Ephesians 5:8-14. At the 10:45 service in The Vine,  the Rev.  Brian Davis will speak on "God Won't Take You Where His Grace Won't Sustain You."
