Music Team 2.0!

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

starts Monday, October 13th

Come join our newly forming music team. We will meet every Monday from 7pm to 9pm and is in two parts:

Part I: read the texts of the Sunday, reflection on themes, select music

Part II: rehearsal of that Sunday’s songs

We’ll also have a second rehearsal before the Sunday service from 9am to 10am. If you aren’t able to join us on Monday, please let Jeremy know and he can forward you the music. We’re encouraging people join as often as possible, but by no means would we ask you to come every week. We value participation over excellence, so your voice (singing or otherwise) is important. We’re not even really requiring people who play an instrument, but please do bring your musical knowledge! We want to stretch beyond just our hymnals and bring in diverse genres and sounds of music.
