MINISTRIES

There is a ministry for everyone


Music Ministry

We continue a mask affirming policy.  You are welcome regardless of your masking choice and please feel free to sing.

Would you be interested in sharing a musical offering?   I am looking for musicians to serve our church by sharing their musical gifts.  Any musician in the congregation or friend of the congregation is welcome to participate.  The musical offering can be vocal or instrumental.  Please contact me if you would be interested.  Thank you!

We are saddened by the recent loss of our long-standing church keyboardist and choir accompanist, Susie Krueger.  She brought such talent and joy to our services throughout her years serving our congregation.  Thank you to Zach Jones, Tom Rusch, and Sue Weihert, who accompanied hymns and provided the musical offerings during the month of October during Susie’s absence and ultimate passing. 

Senior Choir rehearsals begin

If you like to sing and wish to help rebuild our choir, we are meeting weekly at 9:00 a.m. on Sundays. We gather in the Choir Room.

Right now, we practice singing the harmony parts for the hymns of the day, reconnecting, and plan to incorporate some anthems soon.

The Confirmation Experience

Confirmation begins October 19th!

Confirmation is an important time in the life of faith. It’s when we affirm the promises made for us at our baptism and claim them as our own. The Confirmation Experience is more than a class. It’s a time for examination of a Confirmand’s faith experience, an exploration of areas for ongoing spiritual growth, along with a lot of community building fun as they prepare for Confirmation.

We’ll gather on Wednesday evenings, 6-7:30 pm, at the church, starting on October 19. (There will be snacks!) The experience is open to youth in the seventh grade or above. Please contact Pastor Bob through the church office to let him know you’ll be part of the journey.
