2 Apr 2015 –
We are living in very challenging times when news of natural calamities, political instability and financial turmoil loom the headlines daily. Closer to home, domestic violence, broken relationships and betrayal, affect many regardless of age, race or creed.
This Easter, Calvary Church Kuala Lumpur is sending a beacon call to the city of Kuala Lumpur with their much-awaited musical, “Mercy Came Running”, on April 3-5.
“This musical opens our eyes to see that most things we place our hope in, like shifting sands. That was what Peter, the main character of the musical, experienced. He tried so hard to find life’s fulfillment and significance, only to fall flat, with stinging failure and regret,” said Rev David Seah, the Publicity Coordinator of the project.
There will be dramatic presentation of stories of individuals, which the audience can well identify, such as the lady who had moral failure and a son who ran away from home. The end of their stories was nothing like how they began. Their problems, beyond any human ability to solve, were fertile ground for the seeds of mercy to fall.
“Watch out for the climatic ending of Peter’s story. Failure is definitely not final! Staging this family-friendly musical is our way of showing that we greatly value family-bonding, and to proclaim to our beloved city of Kuala Lumpur that there is hope for every situation,” Rev Seah continued.
The 150-strong Production team of the Church will present heart-warming songs, captivating dances and touching dramatic elements.
“Mercy Came Running” will be staged at the Calvary Convention Centre (CCC), Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, at 8pm on Friday, April 3, 2015 and at 5pm on the following two days, Saturday and Sunday, April 4 & 5, 2015. Admission is free.
To help the audience understand how the Easter story is relevant to us today, Rev. Tan Sri (Dr.) Prince Guneratnam, Senior Pastor of Calvary Church and his Associate Pastors will deliver hope-filled messages each evening to everyone, regardless of age. These messages will also be interpreted into Cantonese and Bahasa Malaysia concurrently.
Calvary Church Kuala Lumpur, for nearly 3 decades, has produced other well-known Easter musicals such as ‘Rejoice It’s Easter’, ‘A Timeless Love’, ‘The Father’s Heart’ and ‘Alive In Power’. ‘The Easter Story: He Is Alive!’ musical in 2009, drew a crowd of more than 9,000.
Last year, over 19,000 people were blessed in the Easter presentations at CCC.
On Easter Sunday, 5 April 2015, at 9am, there will be a combined Easter Worship Service at the same venue. There will be an Easter Joy Celebration special service for children aged 5-11 years old and nursery care for children aged 4 months to 4 years old, which will be held simultaneously. Admission for this special service is also free.
The CCC is located in Bukit Jalil and is easily accessible through a network of highways and by Rapid-LRT. A shuttle service will be provided at the Sri Petaling LRT station an hour before and after the Musical.
