Each year, we enter the holiday season by celebrating the musical triumph of Handel's Messiah - bringing this professional performance to Chicago's South Side.
Maestro Charles T. Hayes conducts this epic performance, joined by Monica Perdue as Soprano, Allison Selby Cook as Alto, Jeffery Burish as Tenor, and Arthur D. Griffin, Jr. as Bass.
An orchestra coordinated by David Howard will accompany this musical masterpiece. Our choir is joined by the Classic Act Ensemble and the Chatham Choral Ensemble to lead the chorus in this epic rendition.
Join the Choir in 2019!

All levels of singing talent are welcome. We have three rehearsals in November, Saturday the 2nd, 9th and 16th, 10:00am, and a dress rehearsal Friday, November 29th, 6:45pm.

Messiah Bible Study
Study the Scriptures of Handel’s Messiah with Pastor Ben Heimach-Snipes. This class will meet on Wednesdays Nov. 13th & 20th and Dec. 4th & 11th to be held in the Church Library at 10:00am with Pastor Ben.
During each class we will listen to powerful recordings of Handel's Messiah music and then discuss the meaning and context of the particular scripture that Handel chose for that particular piece. The music composed in 1741 using scripture from millennia ago still has important meaning for us today. Click here for more Christian Education opportunities.
All are welcome!
