Easter Cantata At New Milford Baptist

The choir of the First Baptist Church of New Milford will be presenting the Easter cantata "The Resurrection and the Life" on Easter Sunday, April 11, 7:00 p.m. at the First Baptist Church, Main Street, New Milford, PA.

The story of Jesus would forever change the history of humanity, for the story of Jesus alone has the power to change each individual human heart. In "The Resurrection and the Life," one dozen of the most powerful events from the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ were chosen to be rendered musically and dramatically. Individually, they each provide a portrait of our Savior; corporately, they trace the story of salvation.

All are welcome to come and be thrilled again by this story of hope and salvation.
