Cumberland Valley Christian Choir’s Spring Cantata to Benefit The Tide® Global Radio Ministry
Sunday Concerts on April 2, 9, 23 and 30 Will Help The Tide Ministry Reach Even More Around the World with the Message of Jesus
HARRISBURG, Pa.—Each spring, the Cumberland Valley Christian Choir presents a series of concerts that benefit a local ministry. This year, that generosity will be extended to The Tide® (www.thetide.org) global radio ministry, which reaches people in all corners of the world with the good news of Jesus Christ.
The Cumberland Valley Christian Choir consists of a diverse group of singers who enjoy performing choral music and share a common desire to use their united voices in ministry. The choir approaches performances as worship experiences, and an important goal is to bring those in attendance into closer relationship with God as the choir sings His praises.
“We are so thankful and honored that the Cumberland Valley Christian Choir has chosen to designate this year’s concert offerings to The Tide global radio ministry,” said The Tide Director Don Shenk. “This will not only benefit The Tide ministry financially, but will provide a platform to make more people aware of our mission through brief presentations during the intermissions at each concert. And, by extension, thousands around the world will be able to hear about and know Christ as their personal Savior.”
Now in its 15th year, the Cumberland Valley Christian Choir is offering free concerts on the following dates, with offerings designated toward The Tide ministry:
- April 2 at 7 p.m.—Locust Grove Mennonite Church, 3358 W Main St., Belleville, Pa.
- April 9 at 6:30 p.m.—Mount Joy Mennonite Church, 320 Musser Road, Mount Joy, Pa.
- April 23 at 7 p.m.—West Side Brethren in Christ Church, 2665 Lincoln Way W, Chambersburg, Pa.
- April 30 at 7 pm.—Antrim Brethren in Christ Church, 24 Kauffman Road E, Chambersburg, Pa.
Cumberland Valley Christian Choir’s dedication to being agents of change is evidenced by the fact that there is no admission charge for the concerts, and choir members cooperatively cover any expenses out of their own pockets so that offerings received during the concerts can be given in their entirety to assist a Christian ministry organization to fulfill its mission.
For more than 70 years, The Tide ministry has been sharing the saving message of Jesus Christ and has seen the Gospel’s power to bring peace and transformation around the world. With almost a quarter of the world’s population living within the current range of The Tide radio programming, and nearly 7,000 languages spoken in the world today, the opportunities are tremendous.
Later this year, The Tide ministry will offer programming in its 25th heart language—Isaan, spoken by 19 million people in Thailand. That initiative will allow Thailand to join multiple regions of Zimbabwe, India, Nigeria, Nepal, Bhutan, Albania and Kosovo, where The Tide ministry is already active in broadcasting Gospel radio programming.
