This year, Bishop Debra Wallace-Padgett has asked that we have a Mass Choir lead in worship at the Opening Celebration of Annual Conference on Sunday, May 31, 2015. I am writing to encourage members of your local church choir to be a part of this exciting worship experience. Additionally, we would like for members of your Children’s Choirs, grades 3 through 6, to participate.
There are 3 pieces that we will be singing, in addition to the hymns of the service. These pieces may be ordered from J.W. Pepper or from Kempke’s Music.
Call to Worship:
Anthems (these will include Children’s Choir):
I would ask that your choir members learn the pieces within the next few weeks, arriving at Annual Conference prepared for a rehearsal. Choir members should bring their robes with them. Children’s Choirs do not need to wear robes.
The schedule will be as follows:
In order to plan for seating, please let me know how many choir members will be coming from your church. I may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 205-563-8484.
I look forward to working you all!
