Children’s Choir Begins September 21!
By Catherine Wethington, Director of Children’s & Youth Choirs
Guess what! Children’s and Youth Choirs will start back up on Wednesday, September 21 at 6 p.m.! We will meet in Langley Hall for dinner and then we’ll go down to the choir room to sing. Children’s choir is a fun and educational opportunity for our kids to participate in the life of our church family and to grow in their faith. Some may not know that I grew up here at Trinity and participated in the Children’s Choir program (way back when). Trinity provided me with a special language, music, with which I could express my love for God and my faith in him. Into my adult life music has continued to be a vital expression of my faith. I hope that I can provide our kids with the same excitement and passion for music and God that Trinity’s music program has given me. I can’t wait to meet all of you and start singing!

PROCLAIMING GOD’S PRESENCE IN SONG! Our Chancel Choir will present the anthem I Have Felt the Hand of God on September 25. Pamela Martin’s thoughtful text is complemented by Craig Courtney’s moving musical setting. If you’d like to listen to it as you read these words, here is a link: < https://soundcloud.com/beckenhorst-press/21-i-have-felt-the-hand-of-god>
I have felt the hand of God in your hand. Holding me, you gave me strength to stand. When I was all alone, you came and met my need. And when I lost my way, your hand was there to lead. Through your touch, God’s hand reached out to me. I have felt the hand of God in your hand.
I have heard the voice of God in your voice. Singing praise, you taught me to rejoice. Your voice of comfort caused my grief to end. And when my faith was gone, you called me home again. When you spoke, God’s voice called out to me. I have heard the voice of God in your voice.
I have seen the face of God in your face. Giving all, you shared with me God’s grace. And you were faithful to guide me as I grew. I saw your love for God, and I saw God in you. When you smiled, God’s love surrounded me. I have seen the face of God, I have heard the voice of God, I have felt the hand of God through you.
