Choir

Share your voice..
 JOIN THE CHOIR!
Singing with the choir serves the Lord, is joyful, sets a good example for others and is like praying twice.  But there are other advantages to joining the choir that you might not know about.  Here are some other reasons you should join.
  1. You always get a great seat where you can see everything.
  2. Rehearsal on Wednesday evenings means a night without the kids/grandkids/ spouse.
  3. Single men: The ratio of women to men in choir is 4:1. Of course not all of the women are single, but some are.
  4. Children: The first three kids that get their parents to join get a free pet.
  5. You get complements on a Sunday morning and maybe even applause.  Seriously, when is the last time anyone ever applauded you?
  6. The choir director might decide to take the choir to Germany.  You KNOW you love sauerkraut.
  7. Choir parties are fun, but what happens at the choir party, stays at the choir party.
  8. Youth: Voluntary participation in a group looks really good on college/other applications and makes your parents happy too. Having happy parents improves your likelihood of getting a new phone or car.
  9. Your joyful noise may prevent church members from nodding-off, which is the leading cause of pew-induced head trauma.
  10. Singing in the choir is good for your lungs and your general health.  It’s like free medical care.
  11. Some of the best jokes happen in choir.  Don’t miss your chance to chuckle yourself silly.
  12. You will get to spend time with Pete.  Enough said!

At St. James Trinity we have an active choir that sings regularly on Sunday mornings, except during the summer.

 

The choir meets every Wednesday evening at 6:00 for a one-hour practice. They sing a mix of traditional and contemporary music from unison to 4-part anthems.

 

The choir is comprised of a fun and friendly group of singers.  No auditions are necessary to become a member. In addition to lively choir practices, the group gets together for a variety of social activities periodically throughout the year, helps to sponsor a needy family at Christmas time, and rings bells for the Salvation Army.  Their latest project is to assist the Plymouth Street Ministry by donating needed items for area homeless people.

The choirs from English Lutheran Church of Bateman and St. James Trinity of Fall Creek joined together again to sing for services. They offered a rousing rendition of arranger Joel Raney’s partner song “Peace Like a River” together with “Amazing Grace”.  The four-hand accompaniment was provided by Micaiah Higgins, the choir pianist at English Lutheran, and her piano teacher Anne Kubiatowicz. How wonderful it is to have joyful music inspire worship. Thank you to all involved!  The choir can’t wait to do this again next year.

Choirs from English Lutheran in Bateman and St. James Trinity of Fall Creek joined together in song at the Installation of Pastor Rick Biedermann on July 30, 2017. Thank you to all the choir members for sharing their talents. They sang “You are Welcome Here” with inspiration, emotion and beauty! They were a special addition to an already special service!

Talented Joan is able to play with babies AND play the piano at the same time! It is never too early to enjoy music and hang out with the choir!!

Jesus loves you this we know
For the Bible tells us so
Little Ones to Him Belong
They are weak but He is strong.
Yes, Jesus loves you.
Yes, Jesus loves you.
Yes, Jesus loves you.
The Bible tells us so!!

 

As Martin Luther said, “As long as we live, there is never enough singing!”
