a-MAY-zing May Music
Sunday, May 19 will prominently feature performances by the First Church Music Department.
– 9 a.m. – The FirstKids Choir and First Youth Singers present “FIRED UP!” a musical based on the Bible story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
– 11 a.m. – First Church Chancel Choir is joined by singers from the wider musical community to present “St. Cecilia Mass” by Charles Gounod. Performed with full orchestra and organ, our sanctuary is the perfect setting for the beauty and grandeur of this music. Soloists for the performance are Alison Chaney, soprano; Jeremy Strand, tenor; and Christopher Herrera, baritone.
New Hearing Assist Devices
The ushers closet has some new hearing assist devices along with an assorted style of ear pieces. If you have trouble hearing the service, please ask an usher to assist you. You may check one out for the hour. Please turn it off before returning it to the ushers.
Gourmets for God Returns for the Sixth Season
This is a very fun event where church folks open their homes to entertain other church folks for a meal. The host usually recruits a team of helpers to share the talents in the kitchen and the costs of the event. That team selects the date, time, menu and number of guests. Then the church raises money by offering tickets to each event for a donation. There is more information in the February Good News. We hope for about ten events to take place between October 2019 and May 2020.
