Dianne Rechel, Director of Music Ministries
We have three areas of service. The first is that of nurturing through worship. Every Sunday the choir and organist offer their gifts of music to enhance our worship. This area of our ministry is one that works with the minister and the theme for each Sunday. What a joy it is to all raise our voices together!
The second area is that of music education. We choose musical selections appropriate to the vocal ranges in our choir. Our rehearsals tend to delve into what is behind the written words in our songs. Once a message has been learned and sung, it tends to become part of our being.
The third area is that of outreach to the community. Coming to our concerts is a wonderful opportunity to invite guests who may be drawn to attend worship with our congregation. The beauty of Christmas Eve and the splendor of Easter, saturated with the Word and with music, are memorable and soul-stirring experiences for us all!
Our choir works hard to enrich the shared worship experience. Please consider trying us out. We are a lively, friendly group and we do share a lot of laughs!
Being part of a church, and especially its choir, is a great way to deal with the feeling of isolation that haunts many of us from time to time.. Raising your voice in song together with others creates a bond like no other. Church provides community. We as a choir are not just a part of the community, we create community. That is our fundamental outreach: helping people find grace and acceptance. Many are able to find a greater sense of connection to the world because of joining together with us in song.
