 Music and Worship News!

  January 5, 2016



Rehearsals resume on January 6 for Covenant Carillons at 6:30 pm and Wesleyan Choir at 7:30 pm.  Kevin Eubanks will accompany the rehearsal as Jonathan completes his vacation time.  Music has been selected and plans are being made for a great season of worship and music.  


Sunday, January 10

Prelude:  Jonathan and Efrain “Wade in the Water

Offertory:  “Breathe”  solo needed for 8:30 service.  Adult Choir will sing at 11:00


Worship Design Meeting – quick meeting in the choir room after 11:00 service!  

We will plan for ushers, acolytes, altars, special services, etc through Easter.  Miles Olsen is our new chair.  Thanks! Melissa Marsh, for your leadership this past year. Miles and I would like to form a Creative Arts Team. We will still need folks to do the nuts and bolts of weekly worship, but a team to think creatively will assist Carol and Debbie in making worship the best it can be.  If this is something you’d be interested in being a part of, let Debbie know before January 10.


CKY – Covenant Kids and Youth begins new time on Sunday!

12:15-12:45 – Snack lunch at the Covenant Cafe’

12:45 – 1:30 – Children’s Choir

12:45 – 2:15 – UMYF Activities

2:15 – 3:15 – Youth Choir and Handbells

1:30 – 2:30 – Joyful Noise Handbells


January 10 – new schedule CKY

January 17 – no children or youth music.  UMYF special event for holiday weekend.


Watch for a separate email to sign up to provide a quick lunch for the kids, youth and their leaders.  Many hands will make light work AND it doesn’t need to be fancy or a lot! Just enough to tide them over till they get home.  


How exciting to have all children and youth programs over in time to have play time outside during the afternoon, time with family, time for homework, and other activities.


Bill and Debbie hope that this will allow some additional children and youth to participate.  


Kids Chime Choir!  Debbie will direct kids chimes again for kids in grades 3-5.  This can be on Sunday OR Wednesday night.  Please let me know if your child is interested.

[email protected] and which time is best.  Children’s choir will still include some time with instruments but music reading skills needed for playing handbells require an older child.  The child must be committed to weekly rehearsals.


YOUTH!  Invite your friends to try this new and improved time.  Debbie is planning a youth summer choir experience BUT we need at least 12 kids to make it possible!  Bill and I are working on a schedule for the Spring and we will publish that soon. 

January 10 – All of the above
January 17 – Evening activity for youth.  Children and Youth music is canceled for MLK weekend.
January 24 – back to NEW schedule!
