Music and Worship Ministry Update

By Andrew Schaeffer

ORGAN CONCERT

Join me on Sunday, July 15 at 3:00 as I present my annual July organ recital.  I treasure this opportunity to share music that doesn’t quite fit the scope of our weekly worship services and I hope you’re delighted by pieces both fun and serious.  A small reception will follow.

 

3rd ANNUAL ALL—CHURCH TALENT SHOW

Save the date for our third annual all-church concert/talent show on Sunday August 19 at 3:00!  We have a large and uniquely gifted congregation and this is your opportunity to show off your God-given talents.  Since this event will take place outside of worship, pretty much everything is on the table—from songs (sacred or secular), to juggling or magic.  We’ll be limited only by your imagination (and our space)!  If you’re interested in participating, please contact me (andrew@fumcedmond.org) or call me at the church office.

 

            GRATEFUL FOR OUR FREEDOM

            Since July 4 falls on Wednesday, we’ll commemorate it this Sunday, July 8 during the sanctuary worship services.  While Independence Day is not a church holiday, it is fitting that we give God thanks for our freedom and pray for those who continue to live under tyranny throughout the world. 

           

            A MULTI-CULTURAL JULY

            With the Adult Choir on summer recess, July is a wonderful time to revisit familiar hymns of the faith while exploring some neat songs and hymns from across the globe.  Every week during July, we’ll be learning a catchy “call & response” song from our wonderful hymnal supplement The Faith We Sing.  I hope you’ll come to church every week in July with an open heart ready to join your voices with Christians throughout the world.
