This is a great time for everyone involved in Christian Education to come together for fellowship and fun. We will discuss curriculum and sign up for teaching rotations. We will also discuss safe church guidelines. If you ever wondered what is going on in the world of Christian Ed this is a great time to come and see. If you have any interest in teaching, shepherding, or just want to help with special events come and enjoy a morning where a light breakfast will be served as well as fun fellowship.

Choir Call Fall 2014

abstract_choirChoir Call
Every year in September when the choir returns to our 9:30 service, I invariably hear many people say how great it is to have them back. I agree! I miss them over the summer, and I think everyone else does too. They provide a very important ministry as they sing hymns and anthems which enrich our understanding of the Scriptures and move us as only music can.

Have you ever thought about joining our ranks? If you enjoy singing, we would love to have you sing with us. The choir is a warm and welcoming group—we work hard, have fun, and enjoy making music together. Our rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 p.m., and we sing for the 9:30 worship service on Sundays, with a warm up at 8:45. Child care is provided on Wednesday evenings and before the service on Sundays. This fall our rehearsals begin on Wednesday, August 27, and we will sing for the 9:30 worship services beginning on Sunday, September 7. We very much need additional singers! If you would like to join us, please contact Barbara Raedeke at BRaedeke@aol.com, or just come to the first rehearsal on August 27. You will be most welcome!
