The Sanctuary Choir of Ancient City Baptist Church will present the musical His Name is Jesus – A Musical for Christmas on Sunday, December 8, at the 11 AM morning service.
His Name is Jesus is a musical created by husband and wife team Dennis and Nan Allen. The musical is filled with high-energy celebration songs, warm nostalgic moments, fresh contemporary settings, seasonal favorites, and meaningful worship moments.
Dennis Allen states, “His name was Jesus. But what’s in a name? For a Jewish boy in ancient Judea, the name Jesus was common. In Hebrew the name means ‘God saves’. But that rather ordinary name was a foreshadowing of who that child would become to us.”
He continues, “This musical explores some of the names of Our Lord before His coming and since. It also speaks to the holiness and majesty of His name, for ‘God highly exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow – in heaven and on earth – and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ if Lord, to the glory of God the Father.’”
The 25-voice choir is under the direction of Curtis Powell. Guest narrator for the program is local television personality Jessica Clark. Soloists include vocalist Sharon Haszard from within the ACBC Sanctuary Choir. The choir is joined by a chamber orchestra.
Ancient City Baptist Church is located in downtown St. Augustine on the corner of Sevilla and Carrera Streets. The program is free and the public is invited to attend. There is free parking for all who attend.
