…the season of singing has come… Song of Solomon 2:12
February 13, 2018
I’VE GOT AN OLD CHURCH CHOIR SINGING IN MY SOUL …
What a glorious day to be in the house of the Lord! We had a wonderful time in worship on Sunday as we sang a new song, Old Church Choir. I appreciate so much all of the effort by so many to make our worship service come alive in an effort to prepare our hearts to hear and receive God’s Word brought by our Pastor each week.
We continue our Easter choir practice and it is going very well. As always, it is a great time of singing and fellowship, with a little laughter mixed in. We still have room for more singers and look forward to seeing everyone on Sundays at 4:30 p.m. in the choir room.
I am very excited about our upcoming concert featuring The Hoppers on Friday, July 20, 2018. We are still in the early planning stages, getting contracts signed, etc., but will soon be sharing much more information about this great group. There are a lot of preparations that will have to be made to host a group such as The Hoppers so I will be scheduling a meeting in the near future for anyone interested in using your gifts and talents in helping to make this concert a success.
We introduced a new praise song on Sunday, No Longer Slaves. We look forward to leading this one this coming Sunday.
“Therefore, you are no longer a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God”…..Galatians 4:7.
As always, it is…
For His glory,
The Sunday Choir sings the worship service when scheduled. The song list for the service consists of music familiar to most so the only regular rehearsal is music run-through at 8:40 am. If you have the desire to participate in a choir, but haven't been able to attend rehearsals, or can't read music, or can't sing a voice part, then the Sunday Choir is for you. The Sunday Choir is open to ages from elementary school and up and new participants are welcome anytime.
On Sunday Choir Day, attend the optional 8:40 am music run-through, if possible. Before the 10:30 am Worship Service begins, find a seat in the choir loft. A white, three ring binder (containing your music) will be in the seats.
Worship Team Vocals
The Worship Team Vocalists are those committed to leading worship in song during the Sunday Worship Service, special services, and other events. The Worship Team rehearses Sunday mornings at 8:25 am and other times as scheduled. The Worship Team vocals also practice Sunday afternoons before the Sunday Evening Classes. The number of vocalists singing on Sunday morning is limited by the number of available microphones. Contact Debbie Anderson, Music Director, if you are interested in singing with the Worship Team.
The Children's Choir, when in session, meets Wednesday's at 6:30 pm in the Children's Choir Room -- ages are kindergarten through 5th grade.
Worship Team Band
The Worship Team Band is composed of instrumentalists committed to leading worship during the Sunday Worship Service and special events. The Band may optionally or upon request rehearse with the keyboards Wednesday evenings after the mid-week service (@ 7:30 pm), but are required to rehearse Sunday mornings with the rest of the Team at 8:25 am.
Worship Team Piano and Organ
The Worship Team pianist and organist are part of the Worship Team in the Sunday Worship Service and play for congregational singing at the Wednesday night Mid-Week Prayer Service. Although the primary pianist and organist positions are filled, substitutes are needed. Contact Debbie Anderson, Music Director, if interested in substituting on the piano or organ.
Sound and Media
The Sound and Media Teams are the behind-the-scenes heroes of the Music and Media Ministry.
The Media Team prepares and projects Worship Service visual media for the Sunday Worship Service, the Mid-Week Service, and other services as requested.
The Sound Team operates the sound system for the Sunday Worship Service, the Mid-Week Service, and other services as requested.
