Westminster's Calendar

A Moment for Music from Joe Chrisman...

Summer Sings in July​​ and August!​​ Have you ever wanted to sing in the Chancel Choir, but haven’t been able to commit to the weekly rehearsal schedules? Are you now, or were you ever, a choir member who misses the particular blessings of making music and leading worship? If you​​ answered yes, then a Summer Sing Sunday is for you! If you have adult children or older grandchildren home visiting you on a Summer Sing date, invite them to join you and participate! This opportunity is open to anyone senior-high age or older and it’s a wonderful way to introduce a singing neighbor or friend to worship at Westminster for just one Sunday.​​ 


On Sunday, July 21, and Sunday, August 18, you are invited to assemble with fellow singers in the rehearsal room (Room 7) at 9:00 a.m. We will rehearse​​ music that will be used in the 9:45 a.m. worship service that morning. You can choose to participate on either date (or both) depending on your personal schedule.​​ 


You can find more information on these and other musical events in our​​ June Newsletter.
