Music Notes
2015 Palm Sunday

“To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.”

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our 2015 Christmas season of wonder!  We were especially blessed by music throughout December.  All of you touched people in ways you cannot imagine by sharing your musical gifts.
I know that it seems we just finished Fall Festival Choir, but Spring Festival Choir will be starting up in a couple of weeks.  All who can add your voice to make Holy Week extra special, please come to a brief meeting on Saturday, January 23rd at 9:00 AM.  Rehearsal music will be handed out.  Spring Festival Choir prepares music for Holy Week (Palm Sunday, March 20; Good Friday, March 25; Easter, March 27).  Weekly Saturday rehearsals will take place in the sanctuary from 9 – 11:00AM, beginning February 6.  Accommodations will be made for women who plan to participate in the retreat that weekend.
We continue to have a need for singers at the 8:15 service.  Please let Joan Brown know if you can help with this important ministry.  Weekly choir rehearses Thursday’s at 7:00 PM.  Part timers are welcome.
If the Lord is “calling you to commitment” through music this year, give the experience a try.  He won’t steer you wrong!
Praise the Lord for the days He gives us to let His light shine through us!
Joan Brown, Director of Music
Lent Around the Corner

Lent is just around the corner. It all begins on Ash Wednesday, February 10, which we'll celebrate in worship and communion. Then each of the next five Wednesdays we'll share Soup Suppers, followed by a Lenten Meditation dealing with God's purpose for our lives. Palm Sunday is March 20 and Easter is on the 27th.

Look for more information in the next few weeks.

Music for Flute and Piano

Our good friend and sometimes substitute pianist at Spirit of Joy, Karen Zajac, and flutist Kim Lundgren will present a special musical program at Incarnation Lutheran Church in Poway on Sunday, January 31.

They'll perform works by J.S. Bach, Doppler, Mozart, Leonard Bernstein, and John Rutter.

They cordially invite you to attend. An Offering will be received for renovation of the Incarnation pipe organ

Saturday Cleanup

Due to this year's budget constraints Spirit of Joy no longer employs a weekly cleaning service.

This is why it's important that all of us contribute our time and talents to the weekly care and maintenance of our church facilities. Even if you can help only occasionally, please sign up on the kiosk to be one of our Saturday volunteers. Our coordinators need to know that you are willing to help.
