In Community, Events

On Saturday, October 26, 2019, Cairn University will host Keith and Kristyn Getty’s Sing! for the Delaware Valley. Join the Gettys for the regional summit and children’s event held on Cairn’s campus, as well as the evening concert at Patriots Theater the Trenton War Memorial.

The day kicks off in Chatlos Chapel with the Regional Summit, featuring modern hymn writers Keith and Kristyn Getty. The couple, best known for hymns such as “In Christ Alone” and “The Power of the Cross,” will perform and present their creative vision and offer a biblical understanding of congregational singing in churches. 

During the last hour of the conference, Kristyn Getty will host an interactive children’s event. Kristyn will share from her experiences of growing up in Ireland, show the children Irish instruments, and teach them to sing. This opportunity provides children the ability to learn more about Irish history and making music. 

Later that evening, the Gettys will perform at Patriots Theater at the Trenton War Memorial. Join Keith, Kristyn, and their Irish and bluegrass musicians for an evening of uplifting music and a taste of Irish hymns and modern songs. A concert choir of Cairn alumni and community members—organized by Dr. Benjamin Harding, dean of the School of Music—will lead the audience through a collection of both familiar hymns and newer worship songs. Mr. Bob Doll, a member of the Cairn Board of Trustees, will conduct the choir during the performance. 

“Keith and Kristyn Getty hold a special place in the church as leaders in the hymn-writing movement,” says Dr. Harding. “Having known them personally for a few years now, I can say that their ministry flows out of a deep walk with the Lord. It is so incredible to have them with us this weekend.” 

This concert offers the community a chance to join and worship as the body of Christ, transforming individuals and families and further strengthening and encouraging congregational singing in the church. To purchase tickets, visit cairn.edu/tickets.
