Cantata on Palm Sunday

Come worship with us at Abiding Grace on Palm Sunday, April 1. The service will include the cantata: Come, Touch the Robe by Pepper Choplin. The cantata will be presented by our choir and orchestra directed by Lee Harrity, Minister of Music.

Come, Touch the Robe uses the simple garment that Jesus wore as a thematic device to recount the interaction of those who were with Him during His last days on Earth. To a suffering woman, His robe conveyed divine healing. On the mountaintop, the robe shone and filled the disciples’ eyes with His glory and authority. When Jesus laid His garment aside in the upper room, it displayed His humility as a servant. At the tomb, the grave clothes He left behind help us experience His resurrection and the victory over death. It is through these personal, touching moments that our hearts are fully prepared to meet Jesus in an intimate way, allowing us to experience the healing, the glory, and the power of Christ, and rejoice in the stirring celebration of the resurrection of the Lamb of God.

Worship begins at 10:30am and includes Holy Communion where ALL are welcomed at the table Jesus sets.
