Musical Notes from Calvary

Handbell concert 2012
Handbell Workshop Planned–Mark your Calendars!
Ed Hanson, Calvary’s interim director of music, would like to invite the congregation and friends to attend an informational meeting about handbell ringing that will include some hands-on activities with the bells.  Plans are underway to hold an after-church workshop on Sunday, April 19. Come find out more about the technique of bell ringing, reading music written for handbells, and why handbell ringing is both challenging and fun!  Please save the date if you’re interested, and we hope to have more information about this event in the days ahead!
 
Calling all Instrumentalists!
Calvary’s music program would like to build a database of instrumentalists who would be willing to enrich our musical offerings here at Calvary.  Woodwinds, strings, brass, percussion – we need you!  If you might be interested in sharing your musical skills at church please email the parish office.   Please put CALVARY MUSIC in the subject line.  Our music director is looking forward to hearing from you!

Prayers for our Annual Meeting

Everliving God, whose will it is that all should come to you
through your Son Jesus Christ: Inspire our witness to him,
that all may know the power of his forgiveness and the hope
of his resurrection; who lives and reigns with you and the
Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Almighty and everliving God, source of all wisdom and
understanding, be present with those who take counsel
in Calvary Parish for the renewal and mission of your Church.
Teach us in all things to seek first your honor and glory. Guide
us to perceive what is right, and grant us both the courage to
pursue it and the grace to accomplish it; through Jesus Christ
our Lord. Amen.
