I am so excited that we will soon be starting up again with our music ministries. It is so great to have such a fantastic group of people to help us with our praise and worship throughout the year! From our organists and pianists that help lead our services every week to our Chancel Choir and Bell Choir and even our children who participate in God’s Singers, God’s Ringers, we are a truly blessed church family!
God’s Singers and God’s Ringers are groups for the young disciples of our church. They perform during church services multiple times throughout the year as well as participate in various others kinds of outreach ministries including sharing their gifts at nursing homes and community events. Each time these groups perform, the energy and joy they exude infect everyone who is listening. Rehearsals for God’s Singers and God’s Ringers are in conjunction with Sunday school after church. If you have any questions, or you want to make sure your child is involved, please contact their leader, Jodi Perez.
Just like last year, the Chancel Choir will sing on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month and the Bell Choir will play on the 3rd Sunday of each month. This means the first Chancel Choir performance is on September 11th and the first Bell Choir performance is on September 18th. The first rehearsal for both groups will be on August 24th. Rehearsal times are 6:15-7:00 for bell choir and 7:00-8:00 for chancel choir.
This will definitely be an interesting year for music at Rock Falls UMC. It would be great to have all of you as part of either the bell choir, chancel choir, or both! I’m sure there are members of our congregation who might be interested in our music ministries but haven’t participated. If you want to experience praise and worship in a fun and unique way, please join us! You do not need to be able to read music to participate. Please contact me, or any member of the Bell Choir or Chancel Choir, if you have any questions. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to see you soon at rehearsal and worship.
