The Year In Review (so far) – 2018

1 Comment

It has been a while since our last blog post.  From stretching ourselves to sing a mass setting in Spanish to taking the Joyful Ringers on a road trip to preparing for a major construction project, we have begun 2018 with a mighty roar!  Here are a few highlights of the first half of the year, with the promise that we’ll be back online more regularly again.

CONSTRUCTION  

Part of the plan includes moving our bell room from an unheated storage area on the 2nd floor of the transept to what is currently a stage.  It will be accessible and heated!  Additionally, thanks to the Nutting Fund, we will build an actual library to house our music collections for the first time in the history of GCC.

SHOWTUNE SUNDAY

We continued our tradition of “Second Easter” this year with music from Broadway musicals focused on spreading joy to our world.  What shall we do next year?

Our bell choir had the pleasure of playing during worship at Douglas Congregational UCC in Douglas, Michigan.  Our very first retreat weekend, we fell in love with this church – its congregation and minister – the towns of Douglas & Saugatuck, we gathered around the fire pit, shopped together, ate together, and got to know our fellow Joyful Ringers better than ever before.

The Chancel Choir, accompanied by Raices del Ande (Roots of the Andes), shared this deeply moving setting of the mass.  The worship experience this day was something we will remember for years to come.

  1. I was good friends with Bob and Eve Nutting, and I am so glad that we are finally spending their memorial on a useful and practical project! One that will be memorable for years to come. Thanks!
