…the season of singing has come… Song of Solomon 2:12
October 17, 2017
O come, let us sing for joy to the LORD, Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.
Another great day at FBC on Sunday. It fills my heart with joy to look out over the congregation and see your smiling faces and hear your voices raised in song. God is so good and so faithful and worthy to be praised!
We had another very productive Christmas choir practice with more new faces. We love it when we have to bring in more chairs. There is plenty of room for more. We have a wonderful time of fellowship and the choir is sounding great.
Keep in mind our Christmas Night of Worship on Sunday, December 10th. We have some wonderful singers and musicians signed up to share with us that night. There is still time to let me know if you would like to be on the program.
I know you all have noticed that we have a new face in the praise band recently. We want to welcome Ricky McClelland on rhythm guitar. Thank you so much Ricky for answering the call of God to join us.
I hope you are making plans to attend our gospel concert on November 5th at 6:00 p.m. Mansion View singer, Noah Lyons has served in the music ministry in churches in Missouri and Texas. He is 28 years old and is a vocal coach and teacher. He was saved at age nine and grew up singing gospel music with his family. He is a singer-songwriter and released his first solo album this year. You will notice there are posters hanging around our church about the concert. Please say a prayer for this group as they prepare to come and minister in song.
For His glory,
CHRISTMAS NIGHT OF WORSHIP - December 10, 2017
Due to the recent visit of Hurricane Harvey to our city, we have make some changes to our Christmas Musical. We originally planned to do a musical/drama, but our cast member’s time is limited now due to our community’s hurricane recovery efforts. However, this will not stop us from having a wonderful Christmas program. With the success and enjoyment of our Night of Worship in July, we are now planning a Christmas Night of Worship. It will be an exciting and worshipful evening.
If you are interested in singing or playing an instrument at the musical, please let me know. I will be sending out more information in the near future.
My thoughts and prayers continue for all of our church family who have damages from the flood waters. It was wonderful to see you Sunday morning lifting your voices in praise. It’s a true testimony of your faith and love for our Lord.
And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus- Philippians 4:1
The Sunday Choir sings the worship service one Sunday a month when scheduled. The song list for the service consists of music familiar to most so the only regular rehearsal is music run-through at 8:45 am. If you have the desire to participate in a choir, but haven't been able to attend rehearsals, or can't read music, or can't sing a voice part, then the Sunday Choir is for you. The Sunday Choir is open to ages from elementary school and up and new participants are welcome anytime.
On Sunday Choir Day, attend the optional 8:45 am music run-through, if possible. Before the 10:30 am Worship Service begins, find a seat in the choir loft. A white, three ring binder (containing your music) will be in the seats.
Worship Team Vocals
The Worship Team Vocalists are those committed to leading worship in song during the Sunday Worship Service, special services, and other events. The Worship Team rehearses Sunday mornings at 8:25 am and other times as scheduled. The Worship Team vocals also practice Sunday afternoons before the Sunday Evening Classes. The number of vocalists singing on Sunday morning is limited by the number of available microphones. Contact Debbie Anderson, Music Director, if you are interested in singing with the Worship Team.
The Children's Choir, when in session, meets Wednesday's at 6:30 pm in the Children's Choir Room -- ages are kindergarten through 5th grade.
Worship Team Band
The Worship Team Band is composed of instrumentalists committed to leading worship during the Sunday Worship Service and special events. The Band may optionally or upon request rehearse with the keyboards Wednesday evenings after the mid-week service (@ 7:30 pm), but are required to rehearse Sunday mornings with the rest of the Team at 8:25 am.
