The Master’s Singers (age 55+)
“Sing to the LORD, you saints of his; praise his holy name”
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.
TMS – THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON SINGING!
THANK YOU TO OUR TMS ENSEMBLE!
You sang so beautifully in our Heritage service this past Sunday. The congregation quieted down after the ladies softly sang “create in me a clean heart, O God.” The message came through your voices and also through your lives as you shared this wonderful prayer. Thanks to Barbara Burkins for accompanying us at the piano.
Please make sure to put these Spring dates on your calendars:
Sunday, March 9 – TMS will be the service choir in the Heritage service at 11:00 a.m. We will fill the choir loft and lead in worship by singing our two Festival pieces – “How Great Thou Art” and “The Lighthouse”. We need 70-75 singers that morning! We will wear black on the bottom with solid spring colored shirts/blouses on top. Right now – our main objective is to learn the 4 anthems for the upcoming Choir Celebration and to memorize our two Parade of Choir songs. Attendance is important. Last Thursday we had 70 plus 1 visitor at TMS! Keep up the great attendance!
Plans are underway to host one of the State Adult Choir Celebrations here at FBCA on March 24-25. It will take all of us to host and make this a great experience for all who come. More details to follow in the next month.
After we host the Choir Celebration – we will begin working on our “Old Country Church” program to be presented on Tuesday, May 13 for the OWLS at First Methodist Church and then for our FFF Hymn Sing on Thursday, May 15. Our end of choir year party is scheduled for Thursday, May 22. The theme for the party is “TMS AMATEUR HOUR” – we will have a Talent Show and exchange white elephant gifts. More details to come!
Your involvement and support in TMS is a blessing and a gift to me. It is a “gift” to belong toTMS!
Now is a great time to join TMS – Contact Beth Goetz for more information.
