“Jesus, The Light of the World” Cantata
December 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
WEKIVA’S VERY OWN CANTATA IS COMING
DECEMBER 16TH AT 11 O’CLOCK IN OUR SANCTUARY!
“JESUS, LIGHT OF THE WORLD”
Inspired by Betsy Bone’s vision, and under her guidance, the musicians, artists, and writers of Wekiva have been busy creating our cantata for this year, and we are very excited about sharing it with the congregation!
The cantata tells the story of Jesus from the very beginning of Creation, of the many hopeful years His people waited for His coming, and of the fulfillment of God’s promise of a Savior with the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. It is a story suitable for all ages, and our children will participate in the cantata. Our theme is not only that Jesus is the Light of the World, but He always has been the Light of the World, and always will be The Light of the World. “As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be.”
The music for the cantata will come from our new hymnal, Glory to God, and will be presented by our choirs, several soloists, handbell ringers, Gary at the organ and the piano, and you, the congregation! Some of the songs we will sing will be old friends, but you will also be hearing and singing some of the beautiful new songs from Glory to God. Our artists’ creations will illustrate and enrich the telling of this wonderful story.
Please plan to join us on December 16th for a special service that will begin with “In the beginning,” and end with “Hark the Herald Angels Sing: Jesus, Light of the World.”
