Sunday, September 18, Joyce McHone accompanied our choir and played for the 10:50 a.m. Divine Worship service for the last time after an amazing 25 years as our church pianist. We are happy for Joyce and Ron McHone for their new life and home in Hot Springs but will miss them dearly. We thank God for their contributions to our Chancel Choir, our church music ministry, and to our lives.
On October 2 at 6:00 p.m. Joyce and Julia Stinson along with our chancel choir will present a special evening of sacred music. Afterward, we will recognize Ron and Joyce with a reception in the Grand Hall. I know you’ll want to join me in expressing our love and gratitude for this special couple.
We also welcomed to our church, September 25, our new pianist for the 10:50 a.m. service, Dana Teel of Poyen. She is the music director in the Poyen Schools and comes to us with a wealth of experience in church music. She is joined by Laura Daniel of our church whonow plays for the 8:45 a.m. service. Laura began officially the first of August.
We thank the Lord for these musicians and for their love for Christ and His church!
I look forward to seeing you each Sunday in Sunday School and Divine Worship.
Blessings in Christ,
