Loving Our Neighbors in Ways They Can Hear

main image

THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SERVED!

We loved seeing your comments on social media and hearing that LoveLoud is one of your favorite events/days of the year! So many of you (over 500!) sacrificed a good chunk of your Saturday to spend it serving others in the name of Jesus. Volunteers of every age were serving, from the youngest to the oldest. It was so encouraging to see families serve together and our middle school, high school and college students getting involved.

The 30+ projects varied in size and scope but they all had this in common: your efforts blessed the people and organizations you served. Your time and presence mattered! Your kind words, smiles, and handshakes warmed hearts and told others that they are important--more important than football, errands, and Saturday chores. So thank you! Thank you for loving our neighbors in ways they can hear!

 

"Let us know lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary." - Galatians 6:9, NASB

Children's Auditions for The Singing Christmas Tree

Dear Parents, 

Preparation for The  Singing Christmas Tree is almost upon us, and I wanted to let you know I have a few special roles open for children! I am holding auditions for these specific roles THIS Sunday, September 25 from 2pm-3pm in Room A223 (WAC & Children's Choir hallway). 

We are looking for 15 children in grades 2nd-6th  with energy and musical ability!

If your child would like to audition, please prepare them to sing a few lines of a song of their choice. We may run through a few additional exercises.  

I'm looking forward to hearing your children and helping them enjoy their audition experience, whether it's their first audition or they're a seasoned pro! Auditions are a wonderful opportunity to learn and grow and for some, to overcome their fears! I LOVE being a part of that! 

If you have any questions, please contact Rachel Rizzuti, the Children's Choir Coordinator. I look forward to seeing your child(ren) on Sunday!

 

THE SINGING CHRISTMAS TREE IS FRIDAY, SATURDAY & SUNDAY, DECEMBER  9-11, 2016.
