Loose Coins


So we will all know how it works, the Finance Committee is clarifying how the loose change offering will go forward. All loose coins in the offering plate will g o to the Mission listed for that month. You may still use the “Loose Change” envelopes if you wish and you may certainly continue to add it to your check or write a separate one if you wish to do it that way. At the end of the day the Mission will be grateful for what they receive and you will feel better for having done a good deed.

Family Fifth Sunday Worship

Beginning in 2018, we will hold a “Family Worship” time during the 10 a.m. worship service on 5th Sundays (which generally happen quarterly). Wait, you say, we already have family worship! What makes this different? Yes, we have families - oldsters, youngsters and in-betweeners in worship. On 5th Sundays, we will have some of each of these participate in the service leadership (and not only in ushering and greeting. We will have more family-friendly songs, scriptures and sermon (shorter, too). And we will encourage families to worship with their youngsters who usually play in the nursery. Afterward everyone’s invited to gather for juice (okay, coffee, too), snacks and conversation in the Parlor, as usual. Please plan on joining the lovely, lively worship on April 29th! 


Chancel Choir

Chancel Choir

Do you like to sing? Then the Chancel Choir wants you! The choir leads in wor-ship on Sunday mornings in the 10:00am service, and we rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 7:15pm in the chapel. Soon we will begin working on our Lessons and Carols service which will be Sunday, December 17th at 10:00am. Come and sing with us!

Why Bother with Choirs?

Singing in Choir...

Provides a healthy creative and artistic balance to heavily data-based education.

Is therapeutic, giving singers the chance to momentarily put aside their other pressures and concerns.
Is an effective vehicle for developing faith using music and church history.
Develops poise under pressure.

Teaches the value of teamwork.

Develops young people’s sense of culture and sophistication by adding beauty and aesthetic depth to worship.

Teaches the value of careful preparation in reaching goals.

Teaches a sense of responsibility and setting priorities.

Provides the foundation for a lifetime enjoyment of music.

Gives members a sense of pride and self-worth by showing singers that their individual leadership, demeanor and discipline make a significant to the success of the group
