Saturday Night Eucharist

August 28, 2021

WELCOME IN THE NAME OF JESUS! Worship with us at our 6 PM Saturday Night Eucharist on the Feast of the Martyrdom of St. John the Baptist. The Rev’d. Dr. Samuel David Zumwalt, STS, preaches the sermon, “The Word of God: Raises Us” (Romans 6:1-5). From the console of our 47 rank Austin pipe organ with trompette-en-chamade, Bill Glisson leads on Saturday: “Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus” (Entrance); “We Were Baptized in Christ Jesus” (Hymn of the Day); “The Son of God Goes Forth to War” (Recessional). The color for Sunday is red signifying the blood of the martyrs. You are invited to wear red to worship.

Special music for the weekend: Deux Voix (Stephen Distad and Justin Langham) provides special music on Saturday. “Prelude in A Minor” (J.S. Bach) played by Stephen Distad; for the Saturday offering, “Adagio Cantabile from Sonata Pathetique” (Beethoven) played by Stephen Distad; for Saturday postlude, “Invention in D Minor for Organ and Trumpet” (Bach/Langham); played by Bill Glisson.

We also invite you to enjoy Deux Voix in concert at 4 p.m. in the nave. Deux Voix, an organ and trumpet duo from Houston TX, appears as part of our celebration of the new division and new digital console added to our Austin pipe organ. The Deux Voix concert is made possible by a grant from the St. Matthew’s Endowment Fund.
