KUMC choir to present Lenten service


The Kilmarnock United Methodist Church choir will present Hope in the Shadows, at 4 p.m. April 9 at the church, 89 East Church Street, Kilmarnock.

This contemporary Tenebrae service is composed and arranged by Joel Raney and Lloyd Larson, reported Jo Manson. Choir director Denise Cromer will lead this special program.

Tenebrae comes from Latin meaning “darkness.” This musical recollection is a reflection of Christ’s journey to the cross by examining the shadows of betrayal, injustice and agony that marked the journey. It contrasts the selfish exploits of humanity with the divine nature of a loving God, said Manson.

“We invite everyone to join us on this special musical journey to celebrate the Lenten season,” said pastor Penny Cory.
