A Celebration of Rosmarie’s Life on June 5th!

Rosmarie Trapp passed away last Friday evening surrounded by her family. A small family gathering to bury Rosmarie was held Monday, three days after she died. Here are a few pictures. A Celebration of Life will be held Sunday, June 5, at 2:00, at Stowe Community Church. A reception will follow at the Camelot tent in the Wedding Meadow at the Trapp Family Lodge. We hope you can attend to honor Rosmarie’s memory. 


Nursery Volunteers Needed!

It takes a big heart to help shape little minds and, as Pastor Dan says, the most important

room in the Church building is the nursery. We need volunteers, both teens and adults,

for nursery care during our Sunday morning services.

Please consider volunteering once a month, or even every other month, your time and generosity would be greatly appreciated.

To volunteer, contact Heather Stowe at

Musical Selections

Let My Love Be Heard (by Jake Runestad) | BYU Singers

The terrorist attack in Buffalo last weekend sent me looking for appropriate music. This piece, which I may have shared here before, came to mind. “Let My Love Be Heard” was written by Jake Runestad, a young American composer. What I didn’t know was that he wrote it after a Philippine terrorist attack that killed an American student. Here’s a brilliant performance by the BYU Singers.

I Choose Love

I’ve also shared works by Mark A. Miller in this newsletter. Here is his composition “I Choose Love” which he wrote after the killing of 9 people at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Columbia, South Carolina.
