Christmas Cantata Tomorrow!

 

“The Mystery and the Majesty”
Let’s get in the Christmas spirit together this Sunday, December 3rd, at our 8:15, 9:30 or 11:00 am Service.
Our amazing Sanctuary Choir (MrsO sings in it!) and Orchestra will present a Cantata by Joseph M. Martin entitled “The Mystery and the Majesty.”

From jubilant glorias to gentle manger lullabies, this inspirational cantata celebrates the wonder and splendor of Christmas. Traditional carols and newly composed seasonal anthems blend with thoughtful narration to help create a meaningful experience.

Want to Sing Contemporary Christian music?

 

My church, Pender United Methodist (about 7 minutes from the OCMS on route 50), has just announced that they’re forming a new choir for contemporary Christian music.

  • Choir members will be given sheet music and an audio file containing a performance of the song that is part-predominant (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). You will be able to listen to all voices, but your voice part will be louder above the others. Not sure of your voice part? We can perform a voice test to determine your range!
  • We will rehearse with the Common Ground band for the two Wednesday evenings prior to the Sunday worship date. Rehearsals will be Wednesday evenings at 7:00pm and should last no longer than ½ hour.

Summer Music Camp

 

Pender Music Camp, July 10-14, 12:30-3:30 pm (This is why MrsO doesn’t teach in the afternoon this week!)

The theme for this summer’s  Pender UMC music camp will be “Star Quest.”   We will be exploring music that expresses the goodness of God’s creation and tells of the truth of His word in the Bible.

Children will be rotating through handbell, Orff, drumming and craft classes.  In addition to these “out-of-this-world” classes, we will be preparing and presenting excerpts from the musical “Star Quest – The Search for the Stolen Scriptures.”

Join us this year as we blast off to fun and song!  For ages rising 2nd grade – rising 6th grade.

Registration is open now.
