Sunday evening will be a special night of worship presented by the North Cleveland Baptist Sanctuary Choir.

Leading with the church choir will be vocalists and band members from First Baptist Church Concord out of Farragut.

Tim Paul, a Cleveland native, directs the band.

Paul has lived in Knoxville for many years, but about eight years ago he left his job as the band director at Clinton High School to start a job with First Baptist Concord as their staff instrumental director and arranger.

Paul, along with a team from his church, have written two complete musicals, which Paul has arranged and orchestrated.

Last year this band and choir came to North Cleveland Baptist for another special night of worship presenting the first musical they had written — “Fear Not Tomorrow.” It was a musical companion to the Ann Graham Lotts book by the same title.

This year’s night of worship is called “The Face of God.” It addresses our responsibility to the orphans of this world.

Lanny Green, minister of Worship at North Cleveland Baptist, adds, “There are over 17 million orphans in the world. As Christians, we are given unmistakable direction from God in the scriptures to care for the widows and orphans.”

He references James 1:27: “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

The evening will include an offering that will go to the Christian Alliance for Orphans. This ministry assists orphans all over the world.

“Come and join us as we celebrate God, sing of his goodness, and reflect about our role in helping the fatherless of the world,” Green said.

The worship takes place at 6 Sunday night at North Cleveland Baptist, 2815 North Ocoee St.
