Worship Ministry October 2016

posted Oct 3, 2016, 12:41 PM by Lee Church

Thank you again, Linda for leaving the Worship Ministry in such good shape.  Dedicated volunteers continue to work on all tasks required to meet the ministry’s objectives.

We are back in full swing with Pastor Gail returning following her sabbatical leave and worship services at 8:30 and 10:30 each Sunday.  The praise team and senior & junior voice & bell choirs have also begun after summer breaks. Senior choir rehearsals began on September 15 and bell choir rehearsals will begin on October 11. Rick Smith has trained Hayden Spires, Anna Hocevar, and Cedric Landry to join our acolyte team and will continue to train others as the need arises.

We want to express our appreciation to Sally Barney and Marianne Banks for the Heritage Sunday presentation and Rally Day potluck lunch respectively on September 18.  Sally’s presentation as well as the displays in Fellowship Hall were both interesting and informative.  The potluck lunch planned by Marianne and her Special Events & Promotions ministry team was enjoyed by all.  Thank you both for these two successful events! Many thanks also to Pastor Gail for planning the service and Roxanne, Andrew, and the senior choir for the special music.

The worship ministry has two needs at this time.  We are in need of additional communion support.  If anyone would be interested in assisting Pastor Gail with serving communion on a Communion Sunday at either the 8:30 or 10:30 service, please let Rod MacKay know.  Being a former Diaconate member is not required; however, if you have not assisted Pastor Gail with this in the past, she will provide some basic instructions to you beforehand.  Also, we need greeters for all 8:30 services in October. None have signed up on the sheet in Fellowship Hall as of this writing so we would really appreciate it if you could do so.  Thanks in advance.
