Music Ministry: Summer 2017

Looking Towards Summer

by Catherine Wethington

What an amazing year we have had at Children and Youth Choirs. We finished our singing season with a big bang – our Rock Solid Musical and the Youth Choir’s praise song, Open the Eyes of My Heart Lord. Don’t worry there are still opportunities for you to participate in music at church! The Youth Choir can join the summer choir – learning the song at 10 a.m. before the 10:30 service. We meet in the choir room. We encourage you to bring your Mom and/or Dad to sing, too! The younger children can look forward to participating in VBS – Hero Central – where we will have music, science, art, and story time, August 7-11! Too old to be a camper? Sign up to be a helper! The more enthusiastic our leaders, the more fun everyone has!
