Presbyterians present musical meditation for Lent

| April 4, 2014

COSHOCTON – The Presbyterian Church on North Fourth and Chestnut streets will present the Lenten cantata, “Lamb of God,” as part of its 10:30 a.m. worship on Sunday, April 6.

Five anthems will be sung by the Chancel and Crusaders Choirs and Celebration Singers, led by Charles R. Snyder and Chad J. Putka. The music will be tied together with narration read by Gordon Kendall, Debra Wallace and Jon Carlisle. Alice M. Hoover will be the organist and Ann E. Leppla and Caroline S. Heading will be piano accompanists. Other musical leadership will be provided by the church’s adult handbell choir, Westminster Ringers. Pastor Johnathan T. Carlisle will be the liturgist.

Snyder has drawn the narration from the writings of Max Lucado. In 1988, following some years in Brazil with his wife as missionaries, Lucado became one of the ministers at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas. He has written nearly 100 books, three of which have been selected as Gold Medallion Christian Book of the Year. Lucado was named America’s Pastor by “Christianity Today” magazine and in 2005 “Reader’s Digest” named him the best preacher in America.

All are invited to share in this Lenten meditation. Preschool childcare will be provided and ample parking is available.
