Last weekend, we hosted 10 singers who form the Ugandan Kids Choir. Along with their 3 chaperones, they stayed with families of GCC for three nights. Saturday, Oct. 24, we went on a train to downtown Chicago where the kids saw their first skyscrapers and played in Millenium and Maggie Daley Parks. Sunday, October 25, we were treated to their incredible musical talents as they shared a half hour of their music with our congregation. Thank you to all of the host families! It was an incredible weekend!
We are already planning for Hymn Fest 10 with Paul Leddington Wright as guest conductor & arranger! We need your input, so want to fill you in on the details. As part of the 75th Anniversary celebrations in 2016, our Sunday worship service on October 23, 2016 will be Hymn Fest 10.
Special for the 10th Hymn Fest and the 75th Anniversary of GCC, we are soliciting hymn titles from everyone in the congregation for consideration in this worship service event. If you have titles to add to our list, please click the link below to go to the survey:
We now own a beautiful, new, adjustable piano duet bench for the sanctuary. Our newest piano, purchased in 2012, did not come with a bench and we have been shuffling benches from pianos around the building. All pianos can now have their rightful seats, and we can fit two pianists at the mighty Yamaha C7. Thanks to the Nutting Fund for making this possible!
