Great rehearsals last night. It was so good to be back together again after a few weeks off. While the choir is not singing this Sunday, the orchestra and praise team will lead us in worship along with Cathy Limmer singing, “If My People.”
Here are a few important things this week:
- Our CHOIR FALL RETREAT will be Saturday, September 11th. Save the date. The time frames will likely be 9-3 or 4 and we’ll do a boxed lunch with a suggested donation (like we have done in the past).
- SUMMER NIGHT OF WORSHIP (AUGUST 15th) . The purpose of this event will be for our choir and orchestra to get to play/sing and we’ll also incorporate some group, solo, family acts (or whatever) for a fun night of being together with our church family.
- Christmas at Ivy Creek dates are set. Friday-Sunday Dec 3-5. Friday will be at 7 and Sat and Sun at 6:30. Those of you who do not have a choir outfit, we will be doing “fittings” toward the end of the summer so you’ll have what you need.
- Children’s Choirs will resume in August. The Awana/Choir Kick-off is August 11 and first night of choir will be the 18th. At this point, I could use some extra folks for our pre-school or elementary groups. You don’t have to be a lead teacher to help. Drop me an email or call me and let me know of your interest so I may begin building (really re-building) our teams after such a long hiatus. If you have worked with one of our groups up until last March and wish to continue helping, I’d also like to hear from you.
