The photo at the left shows the choir and the church singing the Hallelujah Chorus, at the end of service on Easter morning some years ago, a longtime CUMC Easter tradition.
For 2017 and 2018 the choir and the worship committee agreed to a slightly different approach. The choir sang an Easter medley of hymns ending in a short piece of the Hallelujah Chorus. The congregation was asked to participate in singing the Chorus portion from their seats (no longer pews, but chairs), near the end of the choir performance.
These days there is a noticeable absence of hats and gloves on Easter Sunday. We may have slightly changed the Hallelujah Chorus from previous years, and a few other traditions. Be assured, however, we shall never fail to celebrate the resurrection of Christ our Saviour and the love of the Lord our God. You are invited to celebrate with us throughout the year, including Lent, Holy Week, and especially Easter morning!
The choir has scheduled its return! The first choir practice of the fall season will be in September with the first performance scheduled to take place the following Sunday at the early service. As a congregation, we welcome back the choir, and look forward to hearing their heartfelt anthems on Sunday mornings, as part of Sunday services.
The choir practices every Sunday after Coffee Fellowship, between services. Snow and other special circumstances may cause a practice to be cancelled - please check with the church office, a choir member, or attend the early worship on Sunday!
