The new St. Dunstan’s Church Choir is off to a great start! We are now rehearsing on Tuesday evenings at 7:00PM (after the Community Dinner which serves from 5:30 to 7:00PM) and Sunday mornings at 9:00AM. Each week we learn the hymns for the coming Sunday, and Jonathan teaches us an anthem or song that we will sing at the offertory time. Ask any of the 11 people who have sung with us, and you will hear how much fun we are having!
At the same time, our new Music Committee has been meeting to begin a careful listening process to find the best path forward for our musical gifts and programs. The committee includes Karen Tynes, Karin Rogers, Arleen Crader, Lu Gardiner, Jonathan Hanneman, Luanne Shelton, Tina Bunes, Mary E. Pacher, and David Marshall. For the next three weeks we would like to hear from you as we form a vision for the future of our music. Specifically, we want to ask:
What are your hopes and dreams for music at St. Dunstan’s Church?
We will include a form in the bulletin for the next three Sundays that you can fill out with your answer. You can also answer by email to email@example.com, or by speaking personally with any member of the music committee.
With this information the Music Committee will write a Musical Profile for St. Dunstan’s Church that will describe our musical gifts and our musical hopes and dreams. We will use this document as we seek our next Music Director, and as we work with the new person to support her or him as she or he begins her or his ministry with us.
Yours in Christ,
