I am so happy to see warm weather here and to see the snowbirds returning to the nest. Our choir numbers are increasing and we are always looking to add more voices to our groups. One opportunity for anyone who is interested is to sing with our Alumni Choir for our 100 year celebration on June 30th. We are beginning to practice the music during our Chancel Choir rehearsals now, so please feel free to come and join us. There will be a rehearsal on Saturday, June 29th at 10:00 as well. We will be singing anthems that are not difficult and would love to have you join us. Other opportunities are there with Chancel Choir, Celebration Bells and Hymn Singers.
We are also looking to train a few more people to work with us at the Technology desk. There are different jobs that take a variety of talents. We will teach you the ropes and it’s a fun way to get involved with worship and literally do it “behind the scenes". If you are interested talk to Jill or Duane.
Finally, I want to personally thank Charlotte Sitzer for her leadership over the past years as the chair of the Art and Environment Committee. When she came to Walker and Hope she was the key person to get the A & E committee up and running. We have a wonderful committee and with her leadership we have been able to do many great things to enhance our worship and our worship spaces, as well as other areas in the building. As she steps down as Chair of the committee, we will continue to look to her for expertise and advice. Thank you so much Charlotte for all you have done for Hope.
Jill Anderson, Worship & Music Coordinator
