Easter cross with music

On Easter Sunday at 7:00 p.m. the Scottsburg United Methodist Church will host the performance of the Easter cantata: “Hallelujah What a Savior! The Crucified and Risen Christ” and selected songs from “The Tomb is Empty Now.”

The performance will be directed by Bill Henderson and will feature the singing talents from the First Christian, Methodist, Baptist, and Presbyterian churches. Soloists for this year’s program are Meta Clark, Scott McDill, Stephanie Lehman, and a trio of Connie Kenninger, Malvina Craig, and Kathy Dodds.

The program marks the first-ever cantata performed by the community choir to be held on Easter Sunday evening. Everyone is invited to attend.

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
