In my new position at College Park, I very much look forward to directing the Handbell Choir and the Children’s Choir, helping to coordinate our Instrumental Music Ministry program, and assisting with Children’s and Young Adult Ministry programs. Please see me and/or fill out the Google forms (available on our website, www.collegeparkchurch.com) if you’re interested in performing with the Handbell Choir (6-7pm Wednesday evening rehearsals), if you’d like to offer your instrumental talents (times TBD on a case-by-case basis), and/or if you’d like your child(ren) to participate in the Children’s Choir!
I have always loved working with children and passing on my love of music to them. Our Children’s Choir (1st and 3rd Sunday mornings each month, 10am-10:40am) will be structured a lot like a general music class, but of course centered on singing. We’ll also be sure to cover basic music literacy skills and basic beginning instrumental skills (percussion, Orff instruments, tone chimes). I believe that making music is one of the most spiritual acts we can perform, and we will of course consistently relate our music-making and performing to important Christian and Baptist concepts. The songs and activities I select for the Children’s Choir will always reflect the values of our church, and I’ll be sure the kids understand that as a primary focus!
Please remember to fill out the Google forms and also see me if you’re interested in being a part of any of these ministries (and, of course, please say hello even if you’re not interested). Being a part of this community has been one of the great joys of my life, and I look forward to continuing to serve and grow with the College Park family in the years to come!
