Bach Cantata 1

St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Arlington is proud to present J.S. Bach’s Cantata 1, How Beauteous Is the Morning Star. Featuring St. Peter’s Adult Choir and the Camerata String Quartet, the Festival of the Annunciation will be celebrated in Word and Music!

All are welcome to join us at one of two presentations of the cantata. Both will occur during regularly scheduled worship times. Sunday, March 26, 2017 at the 8:00am service and again at the 10:30am service.

The Annunciation is celebrated nine months before Christmas, and recognizes the day that the angel Gabriel visited the Virgin Mary and announced unto her that she would be the mother of the Savior of the World,┬áJesus Christ. At the same time, we recognize that Jesus, who prior to this was always God, also became a human being, and did this to save all sinners from their sins. It’s a miracle and a wondrous occasion!

Following the 8am presentation, a reception will be held in the basement for all who wish to join us.

Mark your calendars now and plan to join us for this event!
