Alpharetta Methodist’s choirs often present special concerts, which are free and open to the community. You’re invited to these upcoming concerts and special events:
“Malice in the Palace”
Wednesday, April 15, 6:45 p.m.
The Exodus Middle School Choir will present the story of Esther. The musical has all the ingredients for a great Hollywood thriller: a beautiful and spirited heroine, a dark-hearted villain, a twisting plot full of danger and intrigue, and a cliffhanger of a climax. And in the midst of this excitement we find a powerful message — that even the smallest person acting bravely can make an enormous difference. This very funny musical is filled with great music and choreography.“Malice in the Palace” is a free presentation. A nursery will be available.
“The Prince of Egypt”
Wednesday, April 22, 6:45 p.m.
The Genesis High School Choir will present this musical story of two brothers named Moses and Ramses. One is born of royal blood; the other is an orphan with a secret past. Growing up they were the best of friends, but the truth will ultimately set them at odds, as one becomes the ruler of the most powerful empire on earth and the other the chosen leader of his people. The music was written by Stephen Schwartz, well known for his award winning songs in “Godspell,” “Pippin” and “Wicked.”“The Prince of Egypt” is a free presentation. A nursery will be available.
Friday, May 8, 7 p.m. in Vinebranch Chapel
Join us for an evening of coffee, dessert and live music. The Alpharetta Methodist Vinebranch Band will perform rock, country, gospel and more. The Coffee House is free and is held in the church’s Vinebranch Chapel on Main Street. Learn more here. A nursery will be available.
Sunday, June 28, 8:30 and 11 a.m. in the Sanctuary
During the month of June, Alpharetta Methodist invites the community to donate packages of Oreo cookies, which the church sends to service men and women serving in combat zones overseas. Last year, 3.7 tons of the cookies were collected during Operation Oreo. The cookie drive culminates with this standing-room-only patriotic worship service highlighted by a recognition of active duty military and veterans. Stacks of Oreo boxes surround the altar, and our choir and orchestra perform outstanding patriotic music. Everyone is invited for this patriotic celebration and worship service.
Red Letter Jesus
Friday, August 2, 7 p.m. in the Sanctuary
Alpharetta Methodist welcomes Brad Sherrill as he presents a riveting performance of Jesus’ words from the synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke). This multimedia presentation includes stunning videography captured throughout Israel and Jordan. A nursery will be available.
