News for the week!
Church Council COVID Protocol: Masks are optional for those who are vaccinated. If you are not vaccinated, we ask you wear a mask in consideration of others.
MUSIC NOTES: The LCOR handbell choir practices faithfully every Monday at 4pm. This group plays selections that range from level 1 to level 3. The handbell choir is an integral part of worship at our beautiful church providing musical offerings regularly. They present handbell specials, small group selections with piano, and enhance and accompany the adult choir. The LCOR handbell choir is a dedicated group of ringers that support each other with encouragement and kindness. We currently have several octaves of bells and would love for new ringers to join!
The LCOR choir meets on Wednesdays at 4pm. The choir is the core of the vocal music here at LCOR regularly supporting the congregational hymns and liturgies. This vocal ensemble prepares anthems and specials for weekly worship. They present a variety of music from classical pieces to the very newest contemporary releases. Some members regularly present solo pieces as well as small group musical offerings. The choir is dedicated and loving. They eagerly welcome new voices!
Currently, members of the LCOR Praise Team have joined forces with the choir so there is just one weekly choral practice.
The combined efforts lead to a Christmas Cantata beginning at 9:45am on Sunday, December 18, 2022. Our music group members are very excited to present this upcoming program. This year’s cantata includes a challenging handbell prelude, eight choral pieces, and a finale sure to please. We have the honor of welcoming members of the Dockside Strings who will provide pre-program and post-program music as well as join in on our vocal pieces. We also welcome our resident harpist, some percussionists, a guitarist, and children from our pre-school program that will surely make you smile. The morning will include a brief message, offering, and communion as it also serves as our weekly worship service. There will be a reception to follow and ALL are welcome!
Our LCOR family welcomes all musical talent. We even have a brass trio that plays occasionally. It would be exciting if that group became a quartet, quintet, or even a band! Please drop by and check us out. Thank you for your interest ❤
