Summer Music Opportunities 2022

Summer Choir:

Next Summer Choir Date:  August 14th

We are excited to host our Summer Choir, and our goal is to have seven (7) or more singers to join us who do not usually sing with us!

You do not need to have a great voice.
You do not need to know how to read music.
Just show up a half hour early for church (at 9:00) and give it a try!
*July 10th’s offering is a standard ‘church ballad’ that is based on a familiar folk melody.
*August 14th’s offering is a gospel song that includes a couple of solos (don’t worry, you don’t have to sing the solos, but our new pastor will sing one of them!).
*September 4th’s offering is an uptempo invitation celebrating communion.
Included here is the sheet music to each song (again, you do not have to know how to read music to follow along with the words and get a sense of the up and down of your part’s melody).  Contact me for help on which line to read in the music.
Also included below are YouTube recordings of each song so you can get a sense of how the song sounds, although we will not sing them exactly like the recordings.
July 10 – The Gift of Love by Hal H. Hopson

Will you be one of our seven?  Please join us, we look forward to singing with you!

If you are not interested in offering your own music, I hope you’ll sing in our Summer Choir…

Invitation to Offer Summer Worship Music!

Music, as one of God’s universal languages, is a vital and inspirational component of our worship services. One of the beautiful things about music is that it can (and should) be made by anyone within the diverse population of God’s people: people of varying musical abilities and backgrounds.

On that note, you (and your friends and family) are invited to offer music during one of our summer 9:30am worship services.

NUMC will be blessed by hearing a wealth of differing pieces: bells, instrumental, vocal solos and mixed groups offering contemporary, classical, gospel, folk, rock, jazz, etc. There is no one type of music that is right or wrong—different types of music and media connect with different people, and God is in it all.  I am willing and happy to help you prepare your music for worship: all you have to do is ask!

As of this writing, we have seven Sundays available: 6/19, 7/17, 7/24, 7/31, 8/14, 8/21, 8/28.

Please sign up on our Signup Genius form.  Click the blue sign-up box on the date you’d like, then click the submit button at the bottom of the screen. You will then be taken to a new window where you can describe your musical offering in the comments section.  Finally, click the “sign me up” button.

I am looking forward to hearing from you!
