I just want you to know… I love my job. I am surrounded by friends in the faith and we make music together! Throughout the week, I am in contact with many of them, scheduling rehearsals or talking about music choices. At choir practice, we share coffee before singing (thank you Jan!). We share stories, and laughs, tears and prayers. I sit at the piano and watch and listen as Tess takes a song, and a group of very talented (and sometimes loud!) singers, and turns it into a worshipful prayer put to music. I love my job… When we go into the sanctuary, I get hugs and hand shakes from people I would not even know if I did not have this job. I am able to sit at the piano and see my ever growing family sitting together, knowing that they are “sowing the seeds” of faith for their children. Did I mention that I love my job? I feel blessed to have a boss (Rev. Little), who is so passionate, and yet so very down to earth, who tells jokes, sheds tears, preaches from the Bible and from his heart, and sends me home with something to think about each week. I love my job. I don't have to be perfect, just faithful. I don't have to be fancy, I just have to be me. (“come just as you are”). I appreciate the opportunity to serve Mt Vernon Community Presbyterian Church as Music Director, and thank the choir and bell choir for their continued dedication to the music ministry. I love my job.
Blessed and grateful to be a part of the family of God,
Please join Fred & Joy C., Phil H., Bekah L., Bill & Ellen L., Ben & Christina L., Bruce P., Lynn J., Tim G. and Crosbi T. and the Elizabeth Forward Area Community Chorus for our Spring Concert entitled ‘Lions, Witches & Over-Stuffed Wardrobes’. The first half features songs that involve the Lions and Witches. The second half involves the Over-stuffed Wardrobe. There are some oldies, some new song, songs that will make you cry and songs that will make you laugh.
The Concert will be held at the Elizabeth Forward High School on May 4th & 5th at 7:30 and May 6th at 3:00. Ticket prices at the door are $10.00 for Adults and $8.00 for Seniors and Students. A discount of $2.00 is available on each ticket purchased in advance. Please see a Chorus member beforehand to purchase a ticket at the reduced price. A portion of the proceeds from the Concert will benefit Elizabeth’s Guardian Angels, a new local group that reaches out to those in need in our community with wings of hope, help and love.
