Musical Notes #3 - News and Notables Print

by L. Brookwell

We've begun our new year of practicing and singing and worshiping with music, led by our capable director, Chad.   We eagerly welcomed two new choir members into the choir loft!  

We were excited when Chad announced that our church will be hosting the Rocky Mountain College choir for a performance on March 17th.   Our own choir will join en mass for two selections.  
Everyone is welcome to attend for an afternoon of praising our Lord with song.  Further details to come.

A Spring Concert is also in the works, God willing. A tentative date has been set for May 24th.  Our dedicated accompaniest, Connie, has suffered a serious eye condition and we are praying that God will heal her, and provide us with an accompaniest in the meantime.  Erna has offered her time and talent in the interim, for which we are grateful.

In January, fourteen of us had the privilege of singing at the bedside of our devoted choir member, Ruth Ring. Ruth has been singing as an alto in Foothills Lutheran Church choir for over  35 years. She has been a steadfast supporter of the choir and has been an inspiration to me, personally.  She and her husband Gary have graciously hosted us for choir functions numerous times over the years, which we have always enjoyed and appreciated.  Ruth went to heaven to be with her Lord and Saviour on February 13th.  We were blessed to spend that special time at her bedside, singing her favorite hymns.

Isaiah 51:3

The Lord will surely comfort Zion
and will look with compassion on all her ruins;
he will make her deserts like Eden,
her wastelands like the garden of the Lord.
Joy and gladness will be found in her,
thanksgiving and the sound of singing.
