Have you ever thought about joining the choir, but worried about making the commitment? Summer pick-up choir is just the thing for you! On the second Sunday of each summer month the pick-up choir meets in the choir room at 9:00 am and learns an easy anthem to offer at the 10:00 worship. This choir is open to older children, youth and adults. The remaining dates for pick-up choir this summer are July 8 and August 12. Please contact Megan Sharp, Director of Fine Arts if you have questions.
All Together: Hearts, Hands and Voices
Sundays in June
Have you sometimes dreamed that worship could be more active and creative?
Hoped for the opportunity for everyone in worship to be involved?
At the deepest level, we desire worship to engage us. But worship requires something from us – not only our presence, but our participation. Through Sundays in June, we will explore how to use our hearts, hands and voices in creative and dramatic ways as we study the story of David. This week, we explore David’s defeat of Goliath.
This Thursday, June 14 at 7:30 pm you are invited to attend a special concert at Westminster. The concert will feature members of our community sharing their talent in a program that will include violin, Native American flute, a string band, vocal solos, and cello. We will also collect donations to benefit PACEM (People and Congregations Engaged in Ministry). Following the performance ice cream will be served in the courtyard. This is a fun way to celebrate the beginning of summer, support PACEM, and hear some great music.
Pew volunteers assist in preparations for Westminster Sunday worship services by checking the completeness and orderliness of Sanctuary pew rack contents (e.g., red Friendship pads, Hymnals, Bibles). Volunteers performs this task weekly Westminster service opportunity, in no more than 30 minutes, right after the 11 or 10 a.m. worship service or early in the week. This service responsibility is rotated monthly among six or more volunteers. If you are interested in becoming such a volunteer, please email or call him at 293-5410.
This Sunday is the last Sunday the choir sings before its summer break. We will sing two anthems, the first being “Lord, Here Am I,” by the Minnesota-based composer Stephen Paulus (1949-2014). The piece sets a poem by Herbert Brokering (1926-2009), a Lutheran pastor, poet, and hymn writer. The second anthem is a setting by Alan Bullard of “The Peace of God,” a traditional Hebridean blessing.
