News and Events

Choirs have begun!

We had an exciting children's choirs first rehearsal and registration last Wednesday, Sept. 12th. With the Sweet Repeat set up going on we had registation in the Open Door. It was fun to see so many faces full of surprise and wonder at our inviting, spacious, modern Open Door. Maybe we should have registration in there every year so we can show off the space available to our future junior high and high school youth!  Seventy-six children have been registered to sing in our choirs! Woo-hoo!

Comments

What fun we had last Saturday night at the Great Pumpkin Sing Along! Thank you to Doug Bywter for playing the guitar. Thank you to Julie Stone for delicious pumpking shaped cookies. And thank you to everyone who came! The pumpkin patch was a perfect place to host the sing along.

All of our choirs are open to all. Please join one if you love to sing! We love new members! The children have begun working on their Christmas Eve music so now's the time to join if you'd like to participate on Christmas Eve.

The Chancel Choir is hard at work on the Rutter Gloria and other Rutter Christmas Carols which they will present, along with a guest orchestra, on December 8m at the 9:30 and 11:)0 services. Please come and enjoy this beautiful Christmas music. It will spark your Christmas spirit! There is still time to join the choir and partiipate in the cantata if you are interested!
