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 choir presents this work as a message of hope and comfort in the middle of Lent, in anticipation of the joy of Christ's resurrection. The "Requiem," composed in 2000 does not employ the traditional Latin Requiem texts. Instead, John Leavitt selected Psalms 23, 27 and 47, Robert Lowry's hymn, "How Can I Keep From Singing", the ancient "Easter Carol", and the Celtic text, "Gaelic Blessing.
" 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."
 
The Oak Street Playhouse in the Flo Summitt  Theatre will present the comedy,  "Til Beth Do Us Part," April 16, 19, 24, 25 and 26 at 8:30 p.m. and April  27 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and groups of 10 or more and $5 for students. Make reservations by calling 756-2428 or oakstreetplayhouse@gmail.com.
