Celebrating the hymns of Charles Wesley
Charles Wesley, who co-founded the Methodist movement in
the 18th century with his brother John, was also the author of
thousands of poems and hymns. The hymns of Charles Wesley
teach, inspire, and encourage us in our Christian life.
On Sunday, November 5, at 4pm in Grandview's Sanctuary, a
choir of over 60 voices will sing the influential hymns of
Charles Wesley. Directors, Cindy McGary, Bill Kepner and Bill
Rhoads, and their choirs from Grandview, Covenant, and
Otterbein churches will sing familiar and new anthems with
texts by Wesley.
The choir will be accompanied by Carole Haigh and Bill
Rhoads, piano and organ; Steve Lavender, cello; Dan Hoover,
flute; Austin Wagner, percussion, and the Bravura Brass
The congregation will be invited to sing many favorite Wesley
hymns. Dr. Charles Yrigoyen, noted author, teacher and
Wesley historian, will share brief insights about the ministry of
Charles and John Wesley.
A free-will offering will be received and shared by the three
churches for ministries they have designated. Put this important
date on your calendar; you will want to be a part of this great
afternoon of United Methodist singing!
