Evensong

EVENSONGEvensong 2020
The chancel choirs of the Episcopal Church of the Holy Comforter and Front Street United Methodist Church join forces for an Evensong to celebrate the Feast of St. Patrick on Sunday, March 15 at 5:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary of Front Street United Methodist Church.  We are going Irish and green, even in the middle of Lent!  A reception will follow in the Heritage Center. 

What is Evensong?  
“Evensong ... is a very tiny fragment of something else: It is a fragment of the worship which is offered to God by Christian people every hour of the 24 in every part of the world. When you come to Evensong ... it is as if you were dropping in on a conversation already in progress -- a conversation between God and [people] which began long before you were born and will go on long after you are dead.
Evensong is drawn almost entirely from the Bible. Its primary purpose is to proclaim the wonderful works of God in history and in the life and death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Its secondary purpose is to evoke from the worshiper a response of praise, penitence, prayer, and obedience.” (A statement from Coventry Cathedral)
