Event Description

“Joy to the World,” a beloved Christmas classic, turns 300 years old this year.

Composer Isaac Watt’s interpretation of Psalm 98 invites us to sing a “new song”–and it is a powerful cosmic performance of all creation being renewed and freed. Rather than “joy” being yet another word for “happiness,” we will discover that the depths of joy can be found especially in the midst of suffering, the work of justice, and the presence of compassion–all part of the coming of Jesus to this world and a message the world still so desperately needs. All are welcome. Please join our church family as we celebrate the birth of Christ! Worship services at 2:00, 7:30, and 11:00 pm at St. Paul's United Methodist Church (1340 3rd Avenue SE, Cedar Rapids).
