King of Love Vespers

Vespers ECRC 2 14 16A big thanks to Emmanuel Christian Reformed Church for hosting the King of Love Vespers, and also to everyone who braved the weather to share in the evening with us. It was a truly blessed time!

What is the King of Love Vespers?

King of Love Vespers is a 50 minute worship experience of Scripture, art, music and prayer. In a setting where the focus is God and His Word, the format for worship is reflective and personal.
The nine hymn selections for violin and piano found on the King of Love CD by Stringsong are performed live, with original visual artwork projected during each piece. Worshipers have a devotional guide containing lyrics for each hymn and selected Scripture that is read aloud by a narrator before each selection. Various guiding questions and or statements included with each piece encourage participants to contemplate personal application of God’s Word. Following each hymn played, there is a prayer related to the focus of the hymn’s message.
Reflection on Scripture and words of the hymns, enhanced through visual art and musical expression offer each worshiper time to ponder God’s love, provision and restoration. After the final selection, the Lord’s Prayer, worshipers are encouraged to leave the sanctuary in reverent silence and visit together in the narthex.
