Preparation for the coming of our Savior has begun on Wednesday evenings in the lounge as the choir starts rehearsing for Advent and Christmas. We are thrilled also that the children will be singing the anthem for Stewardship Sunday on November 19th. Thank you to all who have offered such kind words to our choir – we are here to enhance your worship through the beauty of music and text and we are grateful to know that it matters. We will once again have two Christmas Eve services this year and are grateful to Father Tim to be willing to do this. It will be a very busy day since the fourth Sunday of Advent is December 24. The 5 pm Christmas Eve service will be the Family Service with the Children’s Pageant and singing. The later service at 7 pm will be the Festal Eucharist with a 20 minute Organ Prelude and choir anthems. What a glorious celebration it will be!
What a great kick off to our series on September 17! Samantha Wood and John Kline, IV performed for a large audience and rave reviews and as always a delicious, welcoming reception followed. There is another musical treat in store on Sunday, November 19 with organist F. Allen Artz, III, who will treat us to his usual superb programming and artistry. Please plan to join us. Allen is a great friend to our parish and we want to give him a warm return welcome. Please see the enclosed flyer for details. We are grateful to Howard Mitchell for sponsoring this concert and to all our patrons who make this outreach possible. Much gratitude is also extended to our cooks and bakers for making our receptions the best! Thank you!
The sign up sheets for the November concert will be on the bulletin board across from the lounge and on the table in the ambulatory. If you can help, please sign up so that we know how to prepare. Thank you!!
