Bach Cantata Vespers on Sunday

Sunday’s Bach Cantata Vespers celebrates the Festival of the Reformation with Cantata #80, Ein’ feste Burg ist unser Gott (A mighty fortress is our God). Richard Lischer, Professor of Preaching at Duke Divinity School, Durham, N.C., is the homilist. He will also speak during the Adult Ed hour on Sunday. Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B minor, BWV 1067, is the preservice music, with Cynthia Fudala, flutist. There’s a cantata preview at 3 p.m. in the Seminar Room, and Bach 4 Us, for children age 7–11, starts at 3:30 p.m.

Social Ministry Book Drive

Bring gently used books to the atrium this Sunday. Donations will be shared with local VA and children’s hospitals. All genres are needed—fiction and nonfiction (paperback preferred), young adult paperbacks, and children’s books.

Photo directories are ready for pick-up

If you had your photo taken for the directory, please pick up your free copy at the table in the atrium on Sunday morning. If you did not have your picture taken, you can purchase a copy of the directory for $5.
