The purpose of this director’s music ministry is to
“Inspire the Faithful and Engage the Community through Sacred Music.”
All choral and instrumental activities seek to
“Glorify God and Generate Growth which will sustain the church.”
How special it was to hear Jordan Koon singing so sweetly the solo she chose, “Heavenly Sunshine” in the 9:30 a.m. service on October 13th and our Sanctuary Choir opening its new season of worship music with “The Light of the World” on October 20th. Thank you for preparing these numbers and blessing us with your music! Music truly is for everyone from the youngest to the oldest. We can’t wait to hear solos and choral presentations from these people again.
Our musical plans for the 9:30 a.m. service in November will be to hear a ladies’ trio, a violin duet and our faithful Sanctuary Choir. You won’t want to miss their inspiring music. Be sure to attend. All throughout the year, we continue to be fortunate to have a variety of musical groups who enhance our time of worship with very special music. Please encourage all those who continually bring us worshipful music by expressing your thanks at every opportunity you have.
Good news: Two new people have demonstrated their interest in coming to our choir rehearsals to see if they can make room in their schedules for a choral commitment. If any of you who are reading this article have been thinking about sitting in on some of our rehearsals to see if singing in the choir is a place where you would like to serve our church please do so. Previous experience in choral singing is not necessary. You only need to have a love for God and music. So, come and test the waters. We would like to expand our ranks and November is a good time to jump in.
The same is true for those interested in hand bell playing. It’s easy to ring a bell and the teamwork involved in playing with others creates a stimulating atmosphere. Lots of laughter and love come out of our rehearsals. As with choir participation, no prior experience is necessary to join our group of bell players. We have fun learning together as we move along from one piece to another. All those who have a desire to make a “joyful noise” unto the Lord are welcome to come along and discover the joys of hand bell playing with us. Think about it.
Likewise, if anyone who plays an instrument and would like to present a solo or a duet with someone else sometime, please let this director know. Good things have come about just by letting the director know you are wanting to find someone with whom you can make music. Don’t hesitate to speak up and see what God has in store for you.
Enjoy all the events coming up in November. See you in church!
