Last night I met with 8 of our men from the choir to work on a piece to sing in church in a few weeks. What a joy it was to be singing together (even if not with everyone). It certainly was an encouragement and blessing to be in worshipful work with these men. And, the song sounds really good too!
This Wednesday, July 27th we will have our CIC PREVIEW PARTY in the FELLOWSHIP BUILDING beginning at 6 p.m. Please do not arrive before 5:30! We will preview our music and we’ll provide some light snacks for everyone. We will also have some giveaways! Invite an interested friend. We’ll have music for them. At this preview party, I will give out the dates for our tentative FULL rehearsals, which will likely be fewer than in year’s past and will begin in late October.
After our preview party, we will begin rehearsing Christmas music on Wednesday nights in the fellowship building (until we can return to the sanctuary for rehearsals). Because of the space issues and time to set up for orchestra rehearsals, we will adopt a bi-monthly rehearsal schedule for each group. Here’s what I mean: Choir will rehearse every other week from 6-8 and orchestra will rehearse on the other weeks from 6-8. This will allow us to dive deep into our music and only have to set up for one rehearsal group each week. Don’t worry if you can’t be here for the whole 2 hours- just come to the parts you can. Below is our tentative rehearsal schedule through October 5th:

Thank you all for your patience during this season. I hope you see you in worship on Sundays this summer when you’re in town.
