This week's "Jim's Place" brings a special message from Bill White, Director of Music Ministries
Music, drama, and dance can often add to the spoken word to make your Sunday experience a moving one. On August 23rd we will be having a special music Sunday at Forest Hills UMC. Anyone who has any musical interest and talent is invited to connect with me to prepare a musical piece to share in worship that morning. If you sing, play a musical instrument, are a part of a musical ensemble, or want to get a musical ensemble together, this is your opportunity to share your gifts and talents with your church! I am expecting lots of phone calls/texts/ emails from the talented and dedicated people of the Forest Hills congregation. There has been very good response to this and I am anticipating a fun and meaningful worship service on the 23rd.
Our hope is that this Sunday will also give people the opportunity to consider how they can use their talents in worship throughout the year, perhaps by joining one of the choirs or musical groups already established, starting a new group, or by providing special music during worship. The possibilities are endless. Let me know what you can do for Forest Hills. You can text or call me at 615-420-0287 or email me at email@example.com. Thanks for your time, talent, and consideration.
Kristin Clark-Banks is the pastor of Forest Hills UMC.
