Holy Week Vespers Service

A service of reflection, prayer and preparation during the season of Lent, integrating a variety of musical and artistic elements presented by the Artist Circle.  

John 1 says that Christ is the Light that enters the darkness, but the darkness has not comprehended it.  This begs the question, “Who will see the light?”.  Presented by the Artist Circle, this dramatic experience including a variety of musical and artistic elements will look into the lives of three individuals who encountered the Light, and their responses.  Featured guest author and speaker Christopher Yuan will present his compelling “changed-life” story; what happens when someone sees that Light?

Sanctuary Choir Reunion

Choir Reunion

Psalm 100

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

On May 3 and 4, we brought over 130 voices together in singing praise to our God, giving thanks over the remembrance of His faithfulness to The Moody Church for 150 years, and celebrating the joy of changed lives through song. Stay tuned for pictures and video footage of the service, coming soon!
