From our director of music:

As summer creeps toward its conclusion, I want to share a couple of musical experiments we plan to undertake this fall.

First – we are looking forward to assembling a men’s chorus to sing one Sunday in mid-September.  The men of the choir have already signed on, but this is an opportunity particularly for those of you who love to sing but who aren’t Chancel Choir members.  We will practice on a couple of Wednesday evenings (dates and times yet to be determined), then sing two anthems on a Sunday morning.  You don’t need to sing well.  The woods would be very silent if only the birds that sang were those who sang best.  (Henry David Thoreau).  You don’t even have to read music.  If you love to sing, please join us.

Second – as the Christmas season approaches (yes, Christmas!), we will be looking to assemble a children’s choir.  Depending on participation, we hope to sing one Sunday in December and on Christmas Eve.  It’s been difficult in the past to maintain a children’s choir because many children (and their parents) are already stretched thin with school work and school activities.  My hope, however, is that if we limit rehearsals to four Sunday mornings in November and December, enough children will be interested and willing to participate.  Our plan at this point is to rehearse on Sunday mornings from 9:15 – 10:00 a.m.  The dates are yet to be determined.

Thank you – Tony Merry

Consider joining the choir or bell choir. It is a great way to serve the Lord in song. There is always room for more!
