Sunday Sermon (05.19.19)

​"A Change in Menu" based on Acts 11:1-18 

Thanks so much to all who attended the complete performance of Handel's Messiah on Good Friday!  

It was a glorious celebration of beautiful music as well as the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Christ and we at Second Pres are so grateful to have shared this experience with the Shawnee State University Choir, all under the direction of Dr. Stan Workman. 

We are especially grateful for Messiah organist, Dr. Jeremiah Martin, who has provided this link to an audio recording of the performance. 

Take a listen!
