The Sanctuary Choir is ready. Are you? On Thanksgiving Sunday, Nov. 23rd, the choir will sing:
“I will give jubilant thanks to the Lord. I will be glad in the things He has done.
I will give jubilant thanks to the Lord, to God the ever glorious One!”
We are so fortunate to have a faithful core of singers who make up our amazing Sanctuary Choir.
In addition to preparing for their Thanksgiving anthem, they are working diligently on this year’s Christmas Cantata, “Mary Did You Know?” Thank you, singers, for setting aside time in your busy lives to make choral singing a priority! We have welcomed some new singers into our regular choir and an additional number to our Cantata Choir. The sound of so many singers is glorious! There’s nothing like a choir full of Christians celebrating God’s love and mercy. Praise God for our singers!
“I will bring jubilant praise to the Lord. Rejoice and lift my voice to the sky.
For God is the giver of all good things, I will give jubilant thanks to the Lord.
I will give honor and glory and blessings and jubilant thanks to the Lord.”
The Baptist Belles ‘n Beaus also are rehearsing regularly in preparation for their Thanksgiving presentation:
“For the Fruit of All Creation.”
This group also is very diligent in dedicating their time to rehearse in order to bring worshipful music on special occasions to our services. The next time our Bell Choir will be playing is on Nov. 16th. If you want a musical blessing, be sure to attend the 9:30 a.m. service to hear them play.
If you ever have a desire to participate in a choral or hand bell presentation, just let the director know. We welcome newcomers all the time. (No previous experience necessary.) Even if you can’t sing or play year ‘round, we welcome participants at special times of the year, coming as often as they can. Think about it and…
Have a Happy Thanksgiving and Be a Blessing to Others!
