Please join me in thanking the many students of University Singers and I Cantori who share their music. You are invited to return here at 5:30pm for our spring choral concert. We will be joined by four professional soloists and the Walla Walla University Chamber Orchestra to perform two wonderful works, parts of which we hear in this service: Missa in Angustiis (the Nelson Mass) by Joseph Haydn (1732-1809), and Passion and Resurrection, an oratorio by Ēriks Ešenvalds (b.1977). The first anthem and the offertory derive from the Nelson Mass. Translations are given here.


Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts.
Heaven and earth are full of thy glory.
Hosanna in the highest.

Et incarnatus est / Crucifixus

And [Christ] was incarnate by the Holy Ghost, of the virgin Mary; and was made man. He was crucified also for us, suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was buried.

The offertory forms the second movement of Ešenvalds’ oratorio on the death and resurrection of Jesus. The section we sing begins with Christ’s agony in Gethsemane and ends with the suicide of Judas. As you prepare your heart to worship I invite you to meditate on the words, most of which derive from these biblical texts:

Matthew 26:38, 42
Matthew 27:28-31
Luke 23:34

–Kraig Scott




Thank you for your generosity to the local ministry of the University Church, as well as to the global mission of the Adventist Church. The following graphics compare giving in the 2018 and 2019 fiscal years.
