Vocal Choir:

For the Beauty of the Earth – John Rutter

Simple Gifts – arr. Mark Hayes
Bell Choir:

Reflections of Thankfulness – Sandra Eithun

We Gather Together –  arr. Joel Raney

Vocal Choir:   Thursday, Nov. 20 sanctuary    7:30 – 8:30 PM (optional)

Details:  Both vocal and bell choirs will wear robes.  Visiting singers, please bring your robes and music.  We have plenty of extra robes for those in need and will have some copies of music available.  Visiting ringers, please bring your bells and mallets (if needed), but you will not need to bring tables or pads.

Come one, come all!  All are welcome in our choirs, as we look forward to another year of giving thanks together as a community. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Gary Wendt:

Wednesdays in October, kids in the FISH after school program are rotating through a half-hour handchime session with Gary.  Kids ages 5-12 are participating, learning basic ringing techniques and reading rhythms.
