Thursday’s Thoughts from Will 09.06.18

Great rehearsals again last night! Thank you for continuing to be flexible regarding seating in the choir loft. I hope our adjustments will allow us to continue to make the best use of our space, while taking into consideration voices, heights, etc.

I mentioned last night that we will be singing a new song congregationally this weekend after you all leave the loft. I’d love for you to listen to it so you may better lead vocally from the congregation yourself. Here’s the link: Who You Say I Am

We’re back in the loft this Sunday singing “I AM” with the orchestra. Hope you all will make plans now to be here.

Outfits for CIC…This year all men will wear a long- sleeved black shirt and burgundy tie and black pants.  The cost for the shirt will be $20. If you haven’t filled out the size chart yet, Mark Limmer will contact you about getting your sizes.

Almost all ladies have been fitted for the black glitter blouse. If you haven’t, or need a new size, please let me know ASAP. Cost for shirt is $40 which you may pay at anytime. Payable to the church.

Orchestra ladies that are new, plan to wear a black long-sleeved top and black pants/skirt. If you wish to purchase an official black top, we can certainly order you one. Cost is $40 for the top, ladies. As always, if the cost is an issue, let me know.

  1. Hi Will, I will be in Birmingham Sunday. Maybe I should have pointed this out earlier but I sing 1st soprano – the part I hear when singing a song. I phase out on the notes that are out of my range now that my voice has changed. My reading of 2nd soprano is not strong. With this said, I am happy to sit wherever you place me.
