We are delighted to share with you the Christ the King Sunday (November 22) broadcast featuring inspirational music with special guest, bass-baritone Daniel Lichti, and organist Peter Nikiforuk, prayers including requests from across the country, readings, a message, and the celebration of Holy Communion.
Acclaimed as one of Canada’s finest concert and oratorio singers, Mr. Lichti continues to build on his stellar career with major symphonic, choral and concert organizations as well as opera companies worldwide. Until 2017 he served as Associate Professor and Coordinator of Voice for the Faculty of Music at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario.
We offer these worship elements for you to use this day or at your convenience; the timeline is listed below so you can jump to the pieces that are helpful for you. Hymn numbers are for Evangelical Lutheran Worship.
Blessing on your worship!
