Older Hymns Anniversary Concert

For 20 years the Older Hymns have been singing God’s praise in worship. The men’s chorus from Resurrection shares the joy of the Lord through their love of singing. The group sings a variety of styles of music but favor old gospel tunes. In addition to singing in worship the Older Hymns can often be heard singing at care facilities and assisted living apartments in the community as well as in the homes of those recovering from illness or surgery.

On Sunday, April 25, 2010 the Older Hymns will present a concert “Through the Season, Through the Years – Singing God’s Praise for Two Decades” at 7:00pm in the Resurrection Worship Room.

They will sing group favorites like “In the Garden,” “Dry Bones,” and “Patriotic Salute” which incorporates the service hymns from each branch of the military. A special arrangement made just for the Older Hymns of “One Faith, One Hope, One Lord” by Robert Gull (son of Older Hymns member Clark Gull) will be performed with the arranger accompanying on organ. The concert will also include guest performances by a variety of musicians.

Everyone is invited to attend this special performance and then to stay for a pie and ice cream social in the Fellowship Hall afterwards.

Anniversary Dinner & Concert

The fall celebration of Resurrection’s 50th anniversary took place on Sunday evening, October 11. Exactly 50 years earlier the new congregation gathered to break ground for their first building that was erected on the corner of 19th Ave and 27th Street in Marion.

This event was marked by a catered meal at 5:00pm followed by a jazz concert by the Eddie Picard Quartet at 6:30.
