Music Ministry Calendar
Upcoming dates and events!
Summer Orchestra starting June 7th! Over the summer, we will be offering an opportunity for students who want extra time working on their instrument, adults who are looking for an opportunity to play, as well as those looking to pick up their instrument again after a few “years off”. If you’re interested in participating,
please email Craig Harmann at Craig.Harmann@thirstyforjesus.org
so that music can be prepared for you! Rehearsals will be at 6:30 on Wednesday nights over the summer.
Dave and Jess Ray are local singer/songwriters who have created worship songs for children. But, more than that, they've also created family devotion resources that go with the songs. And they're free to you! All you have to do is go to https://doorpostsongs.com/ and enter the code 63XWLY3V where it says "Have a unique church code". You will then be able to go to your cart and download a zip file for free with everything on it. You can put the mp3 files on your computer, phone, tablet, and use the resources as your family devotion and worship time. We'd love to have you use these resources and we pray that it benefits and blesses your family!

Thoughts from the Minister of Music and Celebration
Hope. It's something that we sometimes seem to be lacking in our world and in our lives. But when we worship, more specifically, when we sing, we have hope. Music has this inherent ability to give us hope, and when you put words to it, the power is magnified. And that power is magnified even greater when we sing God's truth to music. As we go to the cross, the tomb and the empty tomb, those words that we sing carry a great power. That hope ends up culminating in the celebration of Christ's resurrection from the dead, as we sing, "I KNOW that my Redeemer lives. What comfort this sweet sentence gives. He lives, He lives who once was dead. He lives my everlasting head." Those words are powerful and give us hope to keep going forward each and every day. I pray that the words that are sung over the next few weeks give you hope.
