First Presbyterian Choir Interns Choir Interns will begin their Fall semester on Wednesday, August 23, 4:30-5:15 PM. Children in Grades 1-6 are welcome to attend. Our mission is to develop musical skills to use in our worship service. We learn that worship is for God, and our sessions focus on worship music in many different styles with activities that build skills in diction, singing, rhythm instruments, bells, basic music reading, and working as a group. We open each session with a devotion. This fall we will be using the Growing in Grace music curriculum with the theme of “The Beatitudes” based on Matthew 5:3-10. A few anthem titles are Give Me a BE-Attitude, Spread a Little Kindness, Walk Humbly, We Gather Here in Grateful Praise, and Shepherds Watch. Hymns include Open My Eyes, Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart, and Silent Night. We encourage regular attendance since we will be presenting several anthems during fall worship services. Please send Barbara (601 629-8026) a text with your child’s name and grade so folders can be prepared. Reminders and info will be sent via text. Supper follows Choir Interns (make reservations via church genius site) and Children’s activities continue until 7:00PM. Please enter at the handicap entrance next to the sanctuary since we will begin in the chapel.
