Our Music This Summer

 Summer MusicMake a joyful noise

It is our tradition to invite musicians from our congregation and beyond to provide worship music during the summer months.  We are grateful for their offerings of talent in the praise of God.


July 24 & 31: Many thanks to Jay Lough, psaltery and Colin & Geoff McLean, duet for their musical offerings during worship. Jay played “Be Thou My Vision,” and the McLean duet was a lovely arrangement of John 15, “I Am the Vine.”

August 7: If you missed the band High Energy in July, you have another chance! Alison Ali and Fitz Kirwan will be back to sing our service music again this Sunday. Their island rhythms and melodies combined with their upbeat spirituality will offer us a meaningful worship experience.

August 14: We are very excited about our Music Camp next week!  100 children from the surrounding community will learn songs based on Psalm 100. Some of those children will join us to lead in worship.

♪ Prelude: Song of Joy – Music Camp Handbells

♪ Call to Worship: Make a Glad Noise/Shout for Joy

♪ Hymn: He Has Made Me Glad

♪ Anthem: His Love Endures Forever

♪ Scripture: We are God’s People (Psalm 100)


August 21: Anne Scroggs will play a Handel flute sonata during our worship. God has given us all a variety of gifts. Today we celebrate the gift of composing great music and the talent God has given Anne, a lifetime musician who uses her gift diligently and faithfully to bring music to life.

August 28: Eric Westrate and Carolynn Baer will provide our worship music.



Our handbell choir, the Chancel Ringers, is in need of a ringer. If you want to be part of a dynamic and committed musical group, please see me about joining. We ring in worship several times a year and practice from 7:30-8:45 on Tuesday evenings.
