“We will build a church family that welcomes, embraces, and loves all people,
excluding no one from full involvement in the life of the church.”
Welcome to Concord Presbyterian
Worship Service | 10:30 AM
This Sunday we lift up our Sunday School teachers and all of our children. Special worship pieces and special music will be part of the service.
Sunday’s anthem: Hector Berlioz was critical in the development of 18th century romanticism in music. Wagner, Strauss, Rimsky-Korsakov, Mahler, and more were all greatly influenced by Berlioz’ development of programmatic music, symphonic form, instrumentation, and progressivism. L’Enfance du Christ is an oratorio that depicts the story of the holy family’s flight into Egypt. Because of the dramatic themes, the work was actually a much more conventional compositional style than Berlioz’ other major works, and was unusually well-received during his life. Today’s offertory is a prayer for the nurture and protection of children, and in recognition that we are all children in God’s eyes.
