The chorus features a varied repertoire of hymns, spirituals and sacred songs arranged for male chorus. The men come from a diverse background of vocations and not one is a musician by profession.

Film features women in the Bible

The Heights Church, 2121 Larry Caldwell Drive in Prescott, presents "Magdalena: Released from shame," at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22.

The Jesus film project has produced a new version of the Jesus film especially for women. The film describes historical accounts of Jesus' interaction with women through the eyes of Mary Magdalene. By portraying stories from the Bible in which Jesus ministers to vulnerable women, Magdalena displays the compassion and unconditional love Jesus expressed toward them. As women in every culture are touched by the powerful message of Christ's life, death and resurrection, they will understand how much He cherishes each one of them.
