ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE

FROM THE MUSIC DIRECTOR

Hello Trinity Church Community!


Here is a quick look at what special music February will bring us:


  • February 11th - Worship Band will provide music for the service, featuring some Praise & Worship standards and a powerful song entitled “Revelation Song” for the Special.
  • February 18th - The Hand Bell Choir will be presenting a fun arrangement of “Somebody’s Knockin’ at your Door” of the Prelude. AND the Adult Voice Choir will sing “Be Thou My Vision” for the Anthem.
  • February 25th - The Low Voice Ensemble will make another appearance to bring to us a beautiful song called “This is My Prayer” for the Special Music. If you are interested in joining us, let me know and I can send you resources to help you get started!


Our Song of the Month for February will be a wonderful Praise Chorus by Brian Sirchio called “Spirit Come”. It brings a comforting flow of phrases and simple rhythms so that every word is important. Check out the words below and listen to a recording example I made for the Worship Band to use for practice. It’s not perfect, but it can give you a good idea of how it will go.


Spirit come, Fall on us anew,

Open up our hearts As we worship you


God of Love, everyday your mercy falls like rain

We give thanks for your ever flowing streams of grace


And for a Sung Benediction, we will sing a portion of a 1970’s hymn called “Bind Us Together with Love”. Click HERE to listen to a version of this song to get familiar ahead of time.


I often get asked how I’m able to do the many things I do, and my answer is usually “Joy”. Music is part of many aspects of my life and I’m grateful I get to share it with my Trinity Community. May we continue to share one voice of praise and one heart of worship toward the God of All!



Until We Meet Again,


Scott Arnold (he/him)

Music Director of 

Trinity Church of Northborough

The topic for February is Lent and Lenten practices. How do you observe Lent? Have your practices changed over the years? What does Lent mean to you? These questions and more will be part of the discussion.


Everyone is welcome to join us on Saturday, February 17th. at 8:30 AM.


For more information or to add yourself to the Saturday Breakfast Fellowship email list, please contact Tom at: tomdan4@gmail.com

FROM THE SEARCH TEAM

The search for a new pastor is currently on hold. In October it became clear to the Deacons that decisions would have to be made about the use of the building and about our ability to financially support a full-time or part-time settled pastor. The Deacons requested that the search and call process be suspended until decisions were made, so we have delayed sending our Church Profiles to the denominations.

 

The Search Team looks forward to continuing our work once these important decisions are made by the Board of Deacons.


Jean Leif, Search Committee
