Ascension Sunday and Festive Norwegian Dessert Table

17 May 2015 | 09:30 am

 On Sunday May 17th, we will celebrate a festive Ascension Day worship service with music by Dietrich Buxtehude. According to the gospel of St. Luke, 40 days after Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, he ascended into heaven. In the church we often celebrate this festival on the Sunday closest to this date. This event is recorded in both the Nicene and Apostles’ Creeds. A small ensemble of string, brass and timpani will accompany the choir in their singing.

Immediately after the service, you are invited to a Norwegian Dessert Table forour coffee hour. If you have something you would like to provide please call the church office.
