Please join the  combined Choirs of Highland Hills UC and Haliburton UC, along with some actors, presenting the cantata “The Choice” Good Friday April 19. Service times: Highland Hills 9:00 am and Haliburton 11:15 am. The synopsis: During the rule of Tiberius Caesar in the seaside city of Capernum, a young Roman centurion, Marcus, falls in love with a beautiful Jewish girl, Hannah. She is a follower of Jesus, the radical teacher from Nazareth. As Marcus becomes fatefully intertwined in the tumultuous events leading to the execution of Jesus, he weighs the words and example of Christ against the wealth and power of the world. In the balance hangs….the Choice.
