Father’s Day/Men of the Church Celebration/Sunday, June 16
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! The Presbyterian Church has suggested that we expand the “Father’s Day” holiday a little and also call it “Men of the Church Day,” expressing our appreciation for all the gifts that men bring to the church. So all men (18 and older), please pick up a small token of our appreciation Sunday, June 16 as our gift to you (provided by the Deacons).
Sanctuary choir news
Our men-only choir on May 12 (Mother’s Day) featured five singers who provided our special music for the day. The women of the choir will have their chance to outnumber and out-sing (?) them on Father’s Day – June 16. Other women of the church are invited to join us as well – we will rehearse at 7 P.M. on June 12.
The final choir rehearsal before summer break will be June 19, and our last Sunday to sing will be June 30.
One final note: please remember that when the prelude begins, talking and visiting should end. This is especially true when we have a guest soloist performing for us. Please give these musicians your attention so that everyone can hear clearly. Thank you! –Susan
