Annual Conference
As you may have heard in church on Sunday, this year, our adult choir has the honor of participating at the Service of Commissioning and Ordination on Wednesday, May 30 at 7:00 at St. Luke’s UMC (222 NW 15th St. OKC).  For this service, we’ll be teaming up with the choir of St. Luke’s, along with an orchestra, to present three stirring anthems: “Amazing Grace,” “How Great Thou Art,” and “Hallelujah” from Handel’s oratorio, Messiah.  You are cordially invited to this powerful service, though you’ll want to arrive early for a good seat and parking spot.

Children’s Choir Recap
Last Wednesday, children participating in our choir program were treated to an ice cream party to celebrate the end of another successful season!  Over the past year, nearly fifty children have participated in one of three choirs and we look forward to that number growing even more next year!  Stay tuned for fall registration information soon, but in the meantime, start thinking of friends, family and neighbors who might benefit from this unique ministry.  Remember, you need not be a member of our church to participate.

Worship This Sunday
We celebrated Pentecost last Sunday in festive form!  However, we have one more liturgical “celebration” before our long summer season starts, and that is Holy Trinity Sunday, which we will commemorate this Sunday.  Trinity Sunday is one of the few festivals that is not directly tied to a Biblical event, like Christ’s birth at Christmas, or the Holy Spirit’s descent on Pentecost.  Yet, it is an important day when we reflect on the mysteries of God and how God uses a variety of expressions to work within our church and world.  Also, as is customary to do on Trinity Sunday, we’ll have the opportunity to sing the Te Deum, which is one of the oldest hymns of praise in Christendom.  Be sure to join us!
