There are as many different ways to offer praise to God and to enjoy the Scriptures as there are people in the world. With that in mind, The Presbyterian Church in Morristown is offering various types of services so that people can find new and exciting ways to engage in worship.
On Sunday, January 27, join us for a service of Healing and Wholeness at 9:15 or 11 a.m. at The Presbyterian Church in Morristown. Reverend Cynthia Alloway will lead these services which have a special emphasis on prayers for healing and wholeness of body, mind and spirit. The music, directed by Matt Webb, will be sung by Cantate Omnes at 9:15 a.m. and the Chancel Choir at 11 a.m.
At 9:15 a.m. on Sunday, Senior Pastor Reverend Dr. David Smazik will lead a discussion on The State of the Mainline Protestant Church at the PCM Parish House on 65 South Street. As we look over the landscape of the mainline Protestant church, what can we observe? In 2013 and beyond, what are some of the unique characteristics that are blending together to create the current condition? Come hear one perspective and join the discussion!
Then, at 5 p.m. on Sunday, the Chancel Choir will be leading a service of worship called Evensong. The name itself sheds some light upon the service which is held in the evening and is sung. An Evensong service is similar to an Evening Prayer or Vespers service, but has a very large musical component. There are a series of sung responses between the leader and the people, chanting of Psalms and larger choral compositions based on the texts of the Magnificat (Song of Mary, “My soul doth magnify the Lord…”) and the Nunc Dimittis (Song of Simeon, “Now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace…”), both found in the book of Luke. These Scriptural songs of praise are used in addition to congregational hymns and choral anthems. Finally, there is a brief homily or sermon. Come share this wonderful musical experience and hear the Word proclaimed!
