The Master’s Singers (age 55+)

“Sing to the LORD, you saints of his; praise his holy name” 
Psalm 30:4

The Master’s Singers Choir Purpose Statement
The Master’s Singers, a choir for adults 55 years and older, exists to glorify God by singing together in authentic worship through their voices and lives, to develop a caring community of fellowship and to have meaning and joy in these extra decades of life. Our purpose is also to discover, cultivate and empower leaders, and leave a legacy for the generations following by positively influencing others in the church and community along the Jesus Way.

The Master’s Singers meet on Thursday mornings at 10:00-11:30 a.m. in the Adult Choir Room.  It is directed by Beth Goetz, and our TMS President for 2012-2013 is Mrs. Pat Stewart.  We’ve got a wonderful year planned, and we would love to have you come join us.



We had 18 from TMS that attended the simulcast of “The Barber of Seville” at the AT&T Stadium on Friday night, April 11.  It was a fun event and all enjoyed the opera.  Don’t know details about next year – but we will be better planned and hopefully, more will want to attend.

Thank you so much for singing so beautifully at the funeral for our sweet friend, Mary Engle, last Friday. The family was so pleased that so many could sing – it was a loving tribute to Mary and Frank.  You sang from your hearts and lifted up the name of the Lord.
