An uplifting service where we remember the last days of Christ.

The Youth Choir of Knox will process into the sanctuary with palms, accompanied by the Senior Choir and the Hand bells, singing “Hosanna in the Highest.”

Rev. Dr. Grant Dawson will speak on the theme of Christ’s Table and the choirs will also sing “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross.”

The reflection continues with the lovely organ postlude “Lift up ye heads O ye Gates” by Alexander Guilmant.

Easter Sunday: March 31st, 2013

A joyous celebration of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.  You are invited to join the Rev. Dr. Grant Dawson and the congregation of Knox United as we respond together to The Call of Easter.

The Senior and Youth Choirs will be joined by a full Brass Ensemble to perform anthems and everyone is invited to sing along to familiar Easter hymns including “Jesus Christ is Risen Today” and “Lord of the Dance.”

Watch the video of Jesus Christ is Risen Today as sung by the choirs and congregation of Knox on Easter morning.

Bring your scores and let us all raise our voices together to finish the service with Handel’s exhilarating “Hallelujah Chorus!”

This will be followed by Widor’s “Toccata” from the 5th Symphony being played as a postlude on the magnificent Casavant organ.
