Message from Don Boylls-Direct of Arts and Music:
Please join our choir and/or bell choir.  We have a very gifted, dedicated and most of all fun Chancel Choir and Bell Choir. We rehearse on Wednesday nights. Bell Choir is at 6:00 pm followed by the Chancel Choir rehearsal at 7:00 pm.  We are especially in need of Tenors and Altos, but welcome people in any voice range.
The Bell Choir has 10 members, but can always use more.  Reading music is helpful, but not mandatory. If you would like to come and try ringing a bell, we would be more than glad to have you. The bell choir includes novices to intermediate bell ringers. We usually perform at service at least every two months, along with extra playing time during the Christmas and Easter seasons. Auditions are not necessary.
Our Chancel choir has a core group of about 15, but fluctuates to 20 people. We perform a myriad of songs and styles, ranging from classical, gospel, contemporary and jazz. Please come and join us on Wednesdays for an evening of music, fun, laughter and great Christian fellowship.  We sing every Sunday morning with the exception of the first Sunday of the month, when our marvelous Tongan choir performs.  We also perform at special services, on Ash Wednesday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and of course, Christmas Eve. We usually sing a cantata at Christmas and sometimes perform one at Easter. December 5, 2009 our choir will join 7 other choirs with the ECHO coalition, performing a concert to benefit Habitat for Humanity. Our choir will sing individually as well as sing as part of a mass choir of all the choirs in the coalition, finishing the evening with the glorious” Hallelujah Chorus” from the Messiah.  This will be our 5th year  singing in this great benefit, for this wonderful cause.
As Director of Arts and Music, I am always looking for people who can play instruments, or provide special music in the way of solos, duets, small groups, interpretive dance etc. If you don’t want to make a weekly commitment to a music program, but love to sing or perform occasionally, then see Don Boylls. I’ll work you into our worship service. Worship can never have enough music.  The Psalms say “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord”.  I am always looking for various ways to enhance our worship experience.
From time to time, we have brought in special performances such as local Christian artist Jim Mulaney, National Award winner Roger Nelson and his “Man from Aldersgate” show, and the Contemporary Christian rock group, “After the Chase”. 
If you are interested in becoming a part of either one of our exciting groups, or just performing solo or with a small group, please contact Don Boylls or just show up on Wednesday evenings. We would be thrilled to welcome you into our musical and Christian family.
