MUSICAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL GOD’S CHILDREN

Whether you are an adult or a child, whether you are experienced or a neophyte, we’d love to have you join us on a regular—or even an occasional basis. With music such an integral part of our worship at Advent, we could use your participation in so many ways. Elementary age children are invited to join in for a group hymn sing in Orinson Hall each Sunday morning as the opening of the Sunday School hour. Or bring a recorder and your entire family for Family Recorders later in the week. Want to learn to ring bells? Middle School Youth, Teens and Adults are invited to learn a new skill or improve an old one by joining with Advent Ringers to ring out the Good News. Perhaps you like to sing? Become a member of the Chancel Choir and lead traditional favorites at the early service(music reading not required). If you have a more contemporary taste, then join Grace Alive! as a singer or instrumentalist at the late service. We need you at either service or both and invite you to participate musically wherever you are led!
