Notes & Announcements
Church-wide Sunday School starts today!
Today marks the start of a new church-wide Sunday School class on the Beatitudes. The class has parts for children from preschool and up as well as adults, so make plans to Zoom in!
- Coffee & Conversation will begin at 9:30am via Zoom. Then, at 10:00am, anyone who would like to continue with C&C can do so in a Zoom breakout room (your C&C Zoom moderator will help you find it) -- but everyone also is invited to church-wide Sunday school! You will use the same Zoom link as C&C.
- The church-wide Sunday School will begin at 10:00am via Zoom with a lesson on the Beatitudes that will be suitable for all ages. Then, at about 10:20am, adult-only households will be invited to stay on the Zoom call for discussion, while families with young children will be dismissed from Zoom for an activity on their own. (If families with young children have a desire for their own Zoom discussion, that will be arranged, too!).
The same Zoom link will be used for both Coffee & Conversation and Sunday School:

Today's music: Today's Knox Soloists and Section Leaders included Erin Keesy, soprano; Debra Templeman, mezzo soprano; Andrew Jones, tenor; Jeffrey Stivers, tenor; Thomas Dreeze, baritone; Michael Hyatt, bass. Members of the string quartet were Manami White and Mari Lundi, violins; Thomas Guth, cello; Chris Roberts, contrabass, with Christina Haan on the continuo organ.
- Come, Holy Ghost was composed by Heinrich Schütz(October 8, 1585-November 6, 1672) who is widely regarded as the greatest German composer before Johann Sebastian Bach. The Knox Choir frequently performs works by Schütz.
- Hvalite imia Ghospodne (Praise the Name of the Lord) No. 8 from All-Night Vigil (Vespers) 37: Sergei Rachmaninoff composed his 15-movement All-Night Vigil (Vespers) Op. 37 in 1915 in homage to the great tradition of Russian Orthodox church music. Considered one of the greatest large-scale a cappella works of the 20th century, The tune of Movement No. 8, Praise the Name of the Lord, is based on Znamenny Chant, a chant developed in Kiev in the 16th and 17th centuries. Today's selections from All-Night Vigil were sung in Church Slavonic (used by the Russian Orthodox Church), and were recorded at Covington’s Cathedral Basilica, Nov. 6, 2016. Earl Rivers conducted the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music Chamber Choir.
