Palm Sunday Celebration Features Maurette Brown Clark

By: Min. Angela Lee Price
As Christians prepare to observe the death, burial, and ressurection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on April 12th, organizers of a Palm Sunday musical celebration entitled The Greatest featuring Stellar Award winning gospel artist Maurette Brown Clark set for April 5th at St. Stephen Church in Louisville, plan to set the record straight on the difference between Palm Sunday and Good Friday, two key biblical events that preceded Jesus' ascension on Resurrection Sunday.

Palm Sunday is often misunderstood states concert organizer, CJ Akins, "God gave me the vision last year to do a Palm Sunday celebration because a lot of people don't really understand what Palm Sunday was about. A lot of people confuse Palm Sunday with Good Friday, therefore you have church choirs singing songs like He Decided To Die on Palm Sunday, and Jesus did not die until Good Friday. Palm Sunday was truly a praise celebration! God gave me this vision to have a praise celebration just like the people did in the Bible. This concert will be a true worship experience. All songs will be songs of praise and adoration to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who is the greatest."

Gospel artist Maurette Brown Clark received a 2008 Stellar Award for Praise & Worship CD of the Year, for her latest CD entitled, The Dream. The CD includes songs One God, Sovereign God, and her latest single, It Ain't Over. "This year we’re going to another level! We are so blessed to have Stellar Award winner Maurette Brown Clark as our special guest, along with Min. Victor Wynn from the Temple Church in Nashville, Tennessee. I am truly excited about what God is going to do on April 5th," states Akins.

St. Stephen Church host praise and worship team, From the Heart will also render selections. CJ Akins is the worship leader for From the Heart, a praise team that sings every 2nd Wednesday at the St. Stephen Church Louisville campus. "God has truly blessed our ministry to sing throughout the Central Kentucky area as well. "We've been together since October 2006," states Akins.

The Greatest is Sunday, April 5th, 5:00 p.m. at St. Stephen Church, 1018 South 15th Street. It is free and open to the public.
