When was the last time you were inspired by a worship service? I choose not to say “enjoy/enjoyed” because, really, worship isn’t about us. We aren’t the audience, but rather the participators. So, when was the last time that you were present for morning worship and felt inspired? I have left worship feeling inspired for the past few weeks. It seems that everything went as planned. There were common themes. The music was uplifting. Have you felt the same way?

Our Parish Choir plays a significant role in the service. They do not simply sing an anthem and then are finished. They are actively leading worship. The Parish Choir roster has grown to 24 members. Praise to God! However, we are in great need of men to join the choir. We simply do not have enough male singers to balance out the choir. I know that you are out there... sitting in your pew on Sunday morning. And it may be that you don’t want to commit to coming to rehearsals, but I would ask that you pray about it. We need you. Come and join us.

Here are a few upcoming events I would like for you to know about:

  • Parish Choir Retreat - October 7 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • 175 th Anniversary Celebration - October 15
  • All Saint’s Sunday - November 5
  • All Saint’s Organ Recital - November 5 at 4 p.m.

These are just a few of the many opportunities to worship here at FUMC. Consider your gifts and how you can use them to the Glory of God.

Grace and Peace, Dakota
