Summer Music At Emmanuel

During the summer months, the choirs at Emmanuel take a break. We then look to other talented members of our church who are willing to provide musical ministry for our Worship Services. We ask our members, some of whom may have obligations which do not allow them to participate in the choir on a regular basis, to volunteer to sing or play music during the Worship Service. It is always refreshing -and sometimes surprising -to discover who has musical ability. Whoever it is and whatever they do, we always enjoy the variety that this season brings to our worship experience. Anyone wishing to perform special music is asked to see Denise Dean and she will add you to the summer schedule.

Upcoming events:

May 25 –Chancel Choir at 6:30 pm

May 29 –Worship Service at 10:30 am; Memorial Service at 12:00 pm

June 18 –300 Club from 12 noon to 6:00 pm
