During the past six months, one of the goals of the music ministry has been to keep a sense of continuity and fellowship among our various choirs and ensembles, and to seek ways to move ahead through this pandemic while exercising wisdom, caution, care for one another, and a right submission to our civil authority and the authority of our session. Even with all of these limitations, we would like our choirs and congregation to be able to experience some of what we have done in the past and hope to do in the not-so-distant future. To this end, we are presenting four digital concerts this fall.

The first three concerts are only fifteen minutes in length with reduced numbers of singers and musicians. Our fourth concert, however, will be a Christmas Special in which our Junior Choir, Youth Chorus, Chancel Choir, Brass Ensemble, and members of our String Ensemble will participate in full. Our hope is that this will be an encouragement to our congregation. We covet your prayers during this time and pray that the Lord will bless these endeavors to his glory and for the good of our church and greater community.

Director of Music Ministry
