The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23 (NRSV)

As we enter into Lent and prepare ourselves for Jesus' triumphal entry, his crucifixion and his glorious resurrection for all of us, I wanted to share with you two exciting musical ways we will be commemorating at this important time in the liturgical year.
First, beginning on March 12 and ending on April 9 there will be mid-week Lenten lunches and services in the chapel. These services will feature St. Paul musicians in an extended musical offering. Lunch will begin at 11:30 in the Activity Center and the service will begin at 12:15, and will end by 12:45. Please invite neighbors, friends, colleagues at work, and please come and be with us.
Secondly, the Chancel Choir, in addition to music on Palm Sunday and Easter that you will find uplifting and spiritually powerful, will be presenting Dale Wood's Service of Darkness on Good Friday, April 16. This is an extended work that features choral meditations on the Seven Last Words of Christ. Janet Spencer will accompany on organ, with Daniel Fry directing. We would love to have singers join us for this work beginning at rehearsal on March 12. Please contact Dan at the church if you would be interested in making a short-term commitment to the choir. This is a powerful work that you will not want to miss!
We welcome new singers and ringers at any time, please contact Daniel Fry at the church (618.233.3303, ex. 118), my church email, my personal email, or at 217.390.0062. Chancel choir rehearse on Wednesdays from 7-8:30 in either the sanctuary or choir room, and bells from 6-7 in the music library room just off the choir room.
May you know the peace of Christ this Lenten season.Daniel FryDirector of Music-Organist
