MUSIC OPPORTUNITIES: Only 2 Sundays until Advent, so it’s time to call all musicians to join in this wondrous season of God's church. Music offering opportunities include:
Instrumental solos or ensembles
Vocal solos or duets
Chimes (outreach and/or in worship)
Our December 17th worship themes is "Caroling Around the World", then both morning worship and Christmas Eve on December 24th.
As always, I'll help with music selection and coaching as needed. This has been a fruitful way to invite and include newer attenders, friends and neighbors.
I'll look forward to hearing from you about availability and how you might want to participate. Christmas Singers will sing on December 17th, most likely with a 30-minute prep time before service that morning. I'll share dates and rehearsal times as things unfold.
