United Methodist Church of Sun City Presents Voices of Freedom on July 4

The United Methodist Church of Sun City Center, 1210 Del Webb Blvd. West, is presenting Voices of Freedom at 9:30AM and 11AM on Sunday, July 4th.  With quotes from our American forefathers to scripture to newly composed narrative and music, Voices of Freedom explores the meaning of freedom in a spiritual context.  With original music by Joseph Martin, these special worship services will feature the church’s fine Chancel Choir accompanied by a nine piece professional brass and percussion ensemble.  Choral selections include Our Heritage of Faith, Community of Faith, the popular Song for Unsung Heroes, If My People, and A Prayer for Our Time. Local vocalist Kathy Straub will also perform the stirring Proud to be an American.  The congregation will be sharing in God of the Ages, America the Beautiful and God Bless America. The text was written by parishioner Carol Stewart, and the hour-long work is sure to make all “proud to be Americans!”  All worship services are free and open to the public.  For more information about this and other special worship services at the United Methodist Church of Sun City Center, please contact Jeff Jordan, Director of Music and the Arts, at 813-634-2539.
