Thanks to all who joined in offering inspiring vocal and instrumental music during the December holiday season. Many of the music-makers attended extra weeknight rehearsals in addition to Sunday practices prior to the morning service.

We’re growing! The blossoming and enthusiastic Children’s Choir program, along with an increase in active Adult Choir members, has precipitated reconfiguring and increasing choir-room seating. The choir room, located on the lower level Wilde Hall, can now comfortably accommodate our additional singers.

Becoming involved in our music program as a choir member or instrumentalist will likely enhance your worship experience. Involvement in a music program fosters new friendships while strengthening the sense of community. January is an ideal time since we begin with new music. The ability to carry a tune is the only requirement.

Adult Choir rehearsals begin on January 7 at 9:30 a.m. in the choir room.

Children’s choir rehearsals will resume following the morning service on January 21.

Happy New Year!
