“O Lord, Our Lord, How Excellent Thy Name”
“In all the earth, the heavens above, there is no other name.
Sing alleluia, sing alleluia, sing alleluia!
How excellent Thy name. How excellent Thy name in all the earth!”
Alleluia, our regular sanctuary choir is back and will be singing in full force in our 9:30 a.m. worship service on October 26, 2014, which is Reformation Sunday!
We are looking forward to a strong choral year starting with Reformation Sunday and continuing with choral anthems on Thanksgiving Sunday, Nov. 23rd, and on December 14th, presenting our Christmas Cantata, “Mary, Did You Know?”
Our goal in this year’s cantata is to unite the musical efforts of people from both the first and second worship services. Please contact either Betty Hanson or Lynn Crawford by Sunday, October 19th, to let them know you are interested in singing in this year’s cantata.
We are in the process of welcoming new singers into our choir and would like to include you! There is nothing quite as exhilarating as singing God’s praises with other believers. As we’ve mentioned before, even if your schedule doesn’t allow you to sing with us all year long, please clear your calendar to sing with us at special times of the church year such as Grandparent’s Day in September, Christmas Cantata in December and/or Easter Sunday in April.
Speaking of Grandparent’s Day, wasn’t the Three-Generational Choir which sang on Sept. 7th sensational! Thank you everyone who turned out to sing on that special occasion. We can’t wait to hear you sing again on Grandparent’s Day in 2015!!
Also, we were so blessed to hear Sierra and Warren Horsley play a flute/guitar duet on Sept. 14th. Thank you so very much. As I mentioned in my last newsletter article, when they play I think even the angels in heaven pause to listen! We can’t wait to hear another duet from the two of you in the near future.
“Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart!”
