Children's Musical: Life of the Party!

Friday, May 13th, 2016 - Sunday, May 15th, 2016

Life of the Party (The Story of Mary and Martha) — a children’s musical by Tom Long and Allen Pote — is being presented Friday, May 13 at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 15 as part of the 11 a.m. worship service. Grace Church’s Angelus Choir, Cherub Choir, Junior Singers and Children’s Bell Ensemble will all play a part.

The stories of Mary and Martha in the gospels deal with issues that are instantly recognizable — family conflict, making time for Jesus in the midst of hectic lives, and trusting God when things get tough. Any parent who has taken a long car ride with children knows that the rst issue is universal.

Likewise, anyone today who goes to work, attends school, or watches the ve o’clock news has wrestled with the other two.

This musical stays true to these themes with music and words that move from lighthearted humor to poignant drama, and the result is an offering that is appealing to adults and children alike.
