Good Friday Cantata

Good Friday Cantata – April 14 at 7 p.m.

Gather with us on Good Friday, the Friday before Easter on which the crucifixion of Jesus is remembered.

Our Sanctuary Choir, plus members of Kirkland Choral Society and a chamber orchestra, will present J. S. Bach’s Cantata #4 Christ lag in Todesbanden (Christ lay in death’s bonds). Over the past several years, the choir has made a tradition of performing Bach’s music, already having performed 5 of the cantatas, the Magnificat, and part one of the Christmas Oratorio. Christ lag in Todesbanden is one of Bach’s most famous cantatas, deeply expressive, and rich in the symbolism of spiritual struggle, and the triumph of life over death.

The service will include prayer and Scripture reading on the death of Christ.

Professional childcare for children under 4 will be available. The ushers will also have “Kids’ Worship Bags” available filled with quiet activities for children to play with during the service.
