Welcome to a new year of music and ministry together at River Road Presbyterian Church! In the 2018-2019 season, we experienced tremendous new energy surrounding our music ministry, and for that we give thanks to God.
Inspired by our momentum and looking to the future, I am excited to announce two initiatives that will enhance our growing musical offerings for the 2019-2020 program year.
In addition to continued growth in our chancel choir, we are re-committing our efforts to enhancing two meaningful components of our music program through the following initiatives:
Re-dedicating ourselves to the music ministry for youth and children.
Youth and children are vital members of the Worship and Music Ministry. Music not only allows them to develop life-long skills as music makers, but also creates profound opportunities for them to connect with God and their peers. If you have a child or youth that has not been involved in music programs at RRPC in a while, or ever, we pray that you will consider giving it a shot this program year. Sign-ups are live here on the website, and we hope you will sign up by Sunday, September 1st.
Expanding our handbell ministry by creating new opportunities for beginner ringers.
Handbells are an excellent way for you to learn how to read music, and to have fun with your church family in a team-based community. Whether you have rung a handbell in the past or never touched one in your life, there is a place for you in the handbell ministry! To give you an opportunity to see if bells might be for you, you are cordially invited to attend “Back to Basics: An Introduction to Handbell and Hand Chime Ringing” on Sunday, September 15th following worship. If you can’t make that, no worries! You are still most welcome to join in ringing.
I encourage you to explore our offerings on the Music and Worship pages of this website. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
Come and celebrate God’s gift of music with us at River Road Presbyterian Church in 2019-2020.
