As Your coming was in peace,
Quiet, full of gentleness,
Let the same mind dwell in me
Which is Yours eternally.

Advent Rehearsal Schedules kick in on December 4 as we begin midweek services and also begin to work with Christmas Choir, Bells, and Brass. Groups will be phasing in and out during these weeks, so please check the calendar, and when in doubt, give Ruth a call!
It’s recital time! Pre-service recitals have become a special Christmas tradition at Our Savior, so, once again, we are looking for musicians of all ages to enhance our holiday services. Past years have highlighted the wonderful talents and rich variety of gifts with which God has blessed this congregation. Elementary and junior-high age students are invited to participate in the pre-service recital before the Children’s Christmas Service on Saturday, December 21; high-school through adult recitalists are invited to participate in any or all of the three Christmas Eve services. If you or your child would like to participate in either recital, please give Ruth a call.
November means the holidays are coming! During December, the music program offers short-term opportunities such as Christmas Bells, Christmas Brass, and Christmas Choir. These groups will begin rehearsing on Wednesday, December 4 in preparation for Christmas Eve and/or Christmas Day. We’ll also be looking for participants for our two Christmas pre-service recitals: one for elementary and junior-high students on Saturday, December 21 and one for high-school students and older on Christmas Eve. If you’d like more information on any of these opportunities, or would like to participate, please let Ruth know.
Intergenerational Bells This fall, we’d like to try having students in Grades 3-8 and parents ring bells together! We’re looking to create an “intergenerational” bell group which will meet on Wednesday evenings from 5:45-6:15. Parents are especially welcome along with anyone who would like to just dip their toe in the bell-ringing waters. :) For more information, please feel free to call Ruth at 385-2183.
Now’s the time to think about fall music! Rehearsals for Kids Praise!, Peals of Praise, and Adult Choir will begin on Wednesday, September 11. Peals of Praise has a couple of openings this year for adults with some note-reading ability who are interested in ringing bells. If you’d like to know more about it, please give Ruth a call. And, of course, there’s always room for more kids in Kids Praise and more adults (actually, 8th-graders and older :)) in Adult Choir!
Ruth is in the office Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, & Friday.
