Church Events for MAY 2018 – JUNE 2018

Music Ministry 
I want to give a big thank-you to all who contributed to our Music Ministry this year. Thanks to the choir for your faithfulness in attending rehearsals and Sunday services. Thanks to Erica who came on board in March as Choir Director. Your talent and expertise are greatly appreciated. Thanks to Evans who directed the choir on some Sundays before Erica was hired. Thanks to David Thomas who helps as music librarian.
The choir traditionally takes a few weeks off in the summer.  The last Sunday that we will sing is June 10, St. Barnabas Day. The choir is not having rehearsals on Wednesday evenings for May-July.  If you have a musical talent or just like to sing, please consider joining the choir when we resume in the fall.
