It does not seem possible to me that I have been here at St. John almost a full year, and what a season it has been. When I arrived, we hit the ground running into a fall program season with bells, choir, kid’s music and a cantata and just this past week an amazing week of VBS with the best kids ever!!!!!
As we move into the 2018-2019 music year, I hope that you consider joining one of our music ensembles here at church, we need you! Perfection is not a requirement, only a willingness to learn and share your gift with others is all that is needed.
The choir retreat will be held Saturday August 24, 2018 from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm, which will include lunch. Guests and significant others are invited for lunch. Regular rehearsals will begin on Wednesday August 29, 2018 at 7:15 pm. The Choir will begin singing in worship on September 9, 2018. Bell choir will return this fall as well, with rehearsal starting on Wednesday August 29, 2018 at 6:00 pm.
The annual Christmas cantata will be Sunday December 16, 2018 and I invite anyone who would like to participate in the cantata to join us in November for rehearsals. We will again include the children and Mosaic in the program.
I am so blessed to be here at St. John with all the talent that abounds in this marvelous place!
In Christ’s Service
