Serve God Through Music
by Jerry Rich, Director of Music
“The New Year is here, and I am looking for a resolution.”
If you are having this thought, why not join one of Trinity’s choirs? Choir is more than rehearsing, ringing and singing. It is a vital part of Trinity whose members feel called to minister to others through music.
Join one of our choirs and you will:
1) Be a part of the church’s worship life
2) Fellowship with others who feel God’s call to serve through music
3) Experience how music becomes an extension of God’s word
Qualifications for joining a choir include:
1) Loving Jesus with all your heart
2) Wanting to express through music what God has done for you
3) Being willing to serve at Trinity
You don’t have to be a great singer or ringer (although we are blessed with those!). If God has called you to serve in a choir, others will help you begin your journey in this new way to serve. Remember that “God does not call the qualified; rather, he qualifies the called.” If God is calling you to serve at Trinity through its music program, please make a resolution now to try one of its choirs!

Children’s Choir is back in action January 7. All children ages 4 and up are invited to join. We meet on Wednesday evening from 6-7 p.m. During the first 30 minutes, all of the children and their families share a meal together. After dinner, the children head to the music room for a 30-minute rehearsal and a brief bible lesson. We will share in a time of food and fellowship, and then discover God through music. A small group like Children’s Choir is an excellent way for children and parents to get plugged into the heart of the church and form lasting friendships. Children’s choir will sing in worship once in January, February, March, April, and we will present our spring production in May.
Our bible lessons will continue the theme we began in the fall, “Naming God.” Have you ever noticed how many different names we have for God? God is called Light of the World, Alpha and Omega, I AM, the Lamb, Creator, Immanuel, Prince of Peace, and so many more! How do we know what God’s name actually is? Are we allowed to call God all of these names? This semester we will explore the bible to discover these different names of God and find out what they tell us about who God is. Our time together will certainly be filled with joy and blessings. I hope to see you there!
