Music Notes December 2016

Fall Festival Choir is well underway, and we have had an amazing response to our call for singers!  Thank you all for your enthusiasm to glorify God with this musical offering, which will be presented at both services on Sunday, December 11.

Thank you to everyone who assisted during Scott’s and my recent time away.  God was glorified through the efforts of all of you!

My favorite service, Thanksgiving Eve, is around the corner.  I encourage you to invite your out of town guests to join you as we give thanks to our gracious, loving, and generous God.  I assure you the service will get you in the spirit for a blessed Thanksgiving day!

The Advent season is almost upon us, and that means our musical themes will emphasize  anticipation and opening our hearts to welcome the Christ child.

May God bless and be with you all throughout these days.
Joan Brown, Director of Music.
Thanksgiving Eve Service

As Christians our cup truly overflows. Invite your family and friends to join us in worship, thanksgiving, and celebration for the many blessings that have been ours over this past year.

Wednesday, November 23, 2016, 7-8pm

This special Thanksgiving Eve Service will be adorned with a harvest theme, and will include special music, a Thanksgiving message, and Holy Communion.  We hope we'll see you there.

Encouraging Words for The Day After Election

The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord,
Like the rivers of water;
He turns it wherever He wishes.

 (Proverbs 21:1 NKJV)

(Psalms 22:28 NKJV).
