On Sunday, May 18, Christ Memorial Church will present its annual concert with the 180-member Sanctuary Choir and Orchestra, Westminster Bells, members of the Epic Praise Band and other musicians under the direction of Gary Matthews. This year’s concert focuses on God’s revelation of Himself to us and our response to Him through a wonderful blend of traditional and contemporary songs of praise and worship including How Great Thou Art, 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord), Revelation Song, and How Great is Our God.
Gary Matthews, Pastor of Worship, has been has been directing the choir and orchestra and leading worship services at Christ Memorial Church for almost ten years. During this time, the annual concerts have featured a wide range of music including Handel’s Messiah, Haydn’s Creation, and music of the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. During this spring’s Holy Week, the choir and orchestra performed The Seven Last Words of Christ on Maundy Thursday. During the 2011 Advent season, the Grand Rapids Symphony Orchestra performed at Christ Memorial with the choir and orchestra.
The concert will be offered at three different times: 9:00 and 11:15 AM, and 5:00 PM. No tickets are required for this event - a free-will offering will be taken. Christ Memorial Church is located at 595 Graafschap Road in Holland. For more information, please visit http://www.christmemorial.org
