The Journey Begins...

The organ console was removed today along with preparation for the placement of speakers for our new organ. We still have lots of work to do so stay tuned!

Good-bye ole' friend-- you served us well.

Our eighty-two year old organ will be played for the last time in worship on Sunday, April 30th.
On Monday morning our trustees will begin taking the console apart and selling the parts to church members and friends who may be interested...keys, pedalboard, bench, arches, etc. 

We have not set a date for the sale but we will keep you updated as to the progress we make. There is a lot of work to be done before our new organ arrives so keep checking back to our website for any updates.

Choral Music Bus Trip

Do you Love Choral Music?   Then We’ve got a Trip for you!

The Classic Christians are sponsoring a bus trip for the whole church this summer to Ocean Grove, New Jersey to attend the Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Choir Festival.  This annual event features a thousand singers in a mass choir, and it is always phenomenal.  The performance takes place in the Great Auditorium which seats 7000 people and is always packed to the gills for the choir festival.  The date is Sunday, July 9th, and the bus will be leaving our parking lot at 2:00 p.m.  We’ll arrive around 4 or so, which leaves about 3 hours to walk around the lovely Victorian town, have some dinner, and then get in line to go into the performance.  Return time is not exact, but it will be about two hours after the performance ends, so it could be close to midnight – but it’s worth it!

Cost will be $40/person, plus the cost of your dinner.  To take part in this great experience, sign up on the sheet across from the Welcome Center.

Great News for Organ Fund!

 This week, a long-time friend of our church gave a very substantial gift for our new organ. Because of this gift, and taking into account the $2125 that is still to come through pledges, I am so pleased to tell you that we will have the money we need to both pay for the new organ and the costs associated with its installation!!! Yay!!!!!!! 

Thanks so much to all who gave so generously (and those who will still give to fulfill their pledge) to this exciting project of our church! Together, we’ve made beautiful music which now turns into beautiful music from our new organ!Thank you, thank you, thank you!
