MINISTRIES

There is a ministry for everyone


Music Ministry

As we begin to worship in person Choral Music Director, Juanita Edington invites you to provide a Musical Offering .

As we have been sharing in-person worship, we have moved to a mask optional policy, but support those who choose to continue to wear a mask. 

We are seeking your offering of musical gifts for our worship. A solo vocalist leads the hymns for the day at a safe distance, unmasked and with a microphone for clarity for the in-person congregation and for the congregation attending on-line.  I am looking for singers who would be willing to lead the hymns at any time, but especially for Sundays when I am not able to be in worship. (I will be gone May 1, thank you Jennie Ortega for leading this day.  I will also be gone June 26.)  Please contact me if interested.

Would you be interested in sharing a musical offering?   I am looking for musicians to serve our church by sharing their musical gifts.  Susie has been filling this role almost exclusively since March of 2020, but 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!

Thank you to Bill Edington and Susie Krueger, who provided the musical offerings during the month of April.

 

Congregational Singing:

Our mask affirming policy allows congregational singing with or without masks.    Each congregant should decide whether to participate or not.

**   This is well within the common practice for churches of members in the United Church of Christ Musicians Association.
