CHANCEL CHOIR Our Chancel Choir is a wonderful way to worship-- We offer ourselves in service. We praise God with our whole hearts. We pray- twice (“One who sings, prays twice.”) We go deep into God’s Word and inspired texts. We love one another as we share our work and lives. If you love to sing praise to God and want a way to deepen your service and worship experience, you are invited to join us! Our rehearsals are 7:30-9:00 pm on Wednesday, just after the WNL studies. Please contact Rev. Nan de Andrade to learn more. No experience/audition is necessary. Come!
ALDERSGATE’S GOT TALENT! MUSICIANS INTEREST AND TALENTS SEARCH
Do you (did you) play an instrument? Would you be interested in playing with a band/orchestra/small ensemble to serve in worship /outreach here at Aldersgate? How about singing? Would you be able to share a solo or are you interested in singing in a Men’s/Women’s ensemble or perhaps a Guitar jam or Bluegrass Strings group occasionally? Let Nan know you’re out there!
Our Joyful Noise Ringers handbell group (for teens and adults) will begin rehearsals on Sept. 6 at 7:30 pm. If you read music and would like to join us, please contact Nan – there is a spot for you! If you do not read music well, but would love to try ringing bells, a beginner group will form – we only need to have seven people interested! We would rehearse at 6:30 on Tuesdays.
We have some great talent in our youth at Aldersgate, and we hope to see you sharing music with our Sunday morning worship. We’re working now to find a way to gather together and practice (2-3 week commitments at a time). We hope you know that you are also invited and welcomed as a part of the Chancel choir / handbell groups!
Please contact Nan de Andrade, Music Minister, to learn more. (firstname.lastname@example.org) or 919-477-0509 x 310

Summertime can be a wonderful time to join us in our music ministry. We will continue to hold rehearsals on Wednesdays from 7:30-9:00. Our choir members are “in and out” accommodating summer travel, so if you have some weeks where you could help us out, we need you! We rehearse weeks ahead for each song, so you will be prepared. Youth and adults of any voice and experience are welcomed! Child care can be arranged, just let Nan know.
Rehearsal schedule: every Wednesday through July 20, except June 28 and July 5. Choir will be serving each week through July 23. Then, we will take a break to “talent scout” out in the congregation! We always want to GROW!
We count on your special gifts through the summer, especially in August when the choir takes their “vacation.” Have you got a song in your heart? Or might you share an instrumental solo? Please volunteer, we’d love to hear you!
SING WITH YOUR SMALL GROUP!
Your Sunday school class, work team, or fellowship group is hereby invited to choose a Sunday during this summer, and show everyone how much you love God by sharing a favorite hymn/song together in worship! Nan can work with you to resource/prepare, contact her today for more information!
WONDERING ABOUT HANDBELLS?
More ringers are welcome – new groups will form in late August. PLEASE Email Nan if you’re interested in possibly joining a new beginners group or our advanced group this fall. Also, music reading skills are needed – and if you need some help with this, summer would be a great time to learn- see Nan for some FREE tutoring in music literacy!
INTEREST AND TALENTS SEARCH
Do you (did you) play an instrument? Would you be interested in playing with a band/orchestra/small ensemble to serve in worship and oureach here at Aldersgate? Let Nan know you’re out there!
NEED SOME “Mi-Mi-Mi” TIME?
Now is a great time for Nan to spend some time with you to help you identify and grow your skills either as a singer or as a music reader! She can listen to your voice, give you some help on how to sound your best, and teach some healthy singing habits. Or, if you always wanted to learn how to read music, you can spend some time learning the basics to get started. Lessons are “free” – it surely will benefit AUMC’s music ministry for you to take some Mi-Mi-Mi time. So contact Nan for some one-on-one time firstname.lastname@example.org or 477-0509 x 116
