Music Notes

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!



HANDBELLS

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.


YOUTH

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!

CHANCEL CHOIR We are so excited about the special music we’re preparing for Holy Week and Easter!

“We Remember Calvary” This poignant Good Friday cantata will be performed jointly with Mt. Sylvan UMC choir and instrumentalists. It is a “Tenebrae” setting, which is Latin for the word “Shadows,” and through scripture readings, anthems, congregational hymns, and the progressive extinguishing of candles, we will recreate the passion story, painting a vivid and moving picture of Christ’s last days and his journey to the cross.



EASTER MUSICAL * On April 30th at the 10:30 5th Sunday service, the choir will present a short Easter musical. Fitly titled “This Changes Everything,” this dramatic choral proclamation features Shane Boatright telling the story as a Disciple of Jesus, and exciting songs and solos in a contemporary gospel style.



CHANCEL CHOIR Looking for a way to boost your spiritual growth during the Easter Season? Choir is a great way to put God’s Word into your heart and mind, to be in Christian community, and to encourage yourself to be in worship as often as possible! Join us, even if it’s just for the season – we are diving in to our special music for Holy Week and Easter, and all voices are welcome and needed!! Youth are also invited! Join us, Wednesday evenings, from 7:30 – 9:00 pm in the sanctuary. Child care can be provided, just let Nan know!
