In addition to the music in our regular services, the music and arts at First Christian church find expression in a number of other musical and dramatic productions. The Easter season is flavored by a dramatic production done on Maundy Thursday (the Thursday before Easter). Themes include the Last Supper, the events leading to Jesus’ trial and death, or related topics of Holy Week. First Christian participates with other area churches to produce special worship services on Good Friday and an Easter Sunrise Service.
Occasionally, First Christian will produce and present a full drama. Recently, we performed the rock-musical Godspell. Cast members for these productions come from the church membership, other churches in the area, and the drama programs of area high schools. Creative dramas also occur during the Christmas season, especially at our annual Christmas Eve services.
