Are you looking for more meaning in the Easter season this year? More than 20 talented singers in the community have been practicing and perfecting this year’s annual Easter cantata over the last several weeks to provide you with an inspiring performance that will lead us through Peter’s experience with Christ. Through Peter’s eyes, we are led to ask, “What is our passion?  What is our call? Who do we  live for?”

The 2013 Community Easter Cantata, “Upon This Rock” by Pepper Choplin (a favorite composer of the cantata chorus over the years) will be presented in both the Dysart and La Porte City communities on Sunday, March 24th. Tony John as Peter and John Thiele as Jesus will be the featured soloists in the performances.

The 40 minute cantata will be sung in La Porte City at a 2 PM performance at the Heartland Community Church at 705 Bishop Avenue and then in the same day in the evening at the Dysart United Methodist Church at 7 PM.
