Faith Assembly Church to Present Fully Orchestrated Easter Cantata: “At the Cross”
The 2016 Faith Assembly Church Easter Cantata
Live Production Poignantly Walks the Audience Through the Events of Holy Week and Features a Fifty Member Choir, Thirty Piece Orchestra, Solo Performances and Selected Videos
POUGHKEEPSIE – Faith Assembly Church in Poughkeepsie will be presenting a live Easter performance entitled, “At the Cross”. The free and open to the public presentation will run both Saturday evening, April 8th and Sunday evening April 9th will feature a fifty-member choir and a thirty-piece orchestra that is made up of music professionals from throughout the Hudson Valley. Under the leadership of Senior Pastor, Rev. Dr. Edward Jones and the musical direction of Rev. Kreg Godfrey, “At the Cross” showcases a mixture of expressive, reverent and upbeat songs interwoven with selected videos that conveys, and helps the audience ponder, the magnitude, meaning and hope that is associated with the events leading up to Easter Sunday.
“We normally remember the events of Holy Week leading up to the Easter Resurrection and while that is fitting, we often gloss over how the finished work of the Cross impacts our lives today,” said Musical Director, Kreg Godfrey. “Jesus’ redeeming sacrifice presents us clean before God, and the reality of new life empowers us to live that life before the world.”
“Each year we have such a positive response to our annual Cantata from both church members and those who live in the community who join us for the Easter production, “said the Reverend Edward Jones. “Meeting new friends and sharing the many things Faith Assembly has to offer is big part of who we are as a congregation.”
