The Valley Gospel Singers perform at our worship services the first Sunday of the month. These singers are directed by Helen Peterson.
The Cherub Choir and Praise Team fill our worship services with music each Sunday. Each choir offers the opportunity for people of all ages to share their musical gifts during worship.
The Praise Team
Welcome to another great year of youth worship music at RLC! Praise Team meets each Sunday from approximately 11:05 (after Sunday School) til noon, and it is open to all students in grades 3-12. We will be singing the 3rd Sunday of each month, which is different from last year when we sang on the 2nd Sunday. We may also sing for other special occasions during the year such as holidays and Lenten services. We usually meet in the narthex to warm-up at 8:30 on the days that we sing. We also have snack at the end of each practice.
Praise Team will sing a mixture of contemporary and traditional songs, and try to incorporate instruments when possible! So, if your child plays an instrument, and would like to share their talents with the group, we are more than welcome to that! This year we will also be focusing a bit on learning music basics, so that all the kids will be able to read any piece of music they pick up!
We are very fortunate to have this program available here at RLC. I have noticed that it is uncommon for churches to have a music program targeted specifically towards students above Cherub age. Though most churches have a Christmas program and other special events, the opportunity for kids this age to sing and play music regularly as a group is something very special that we have at Rushford Lutheran Church. So please encourage your children to participate, and to invite their friends to do so as well.
If ever you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. My cell is 507-459-0731; the café is 875-2424; email [email protected]; or via Facebook messenger. I am beyond honored at the opportunity to work with the young people of our church to produce music that gives glory to God, showcases their gifts, and brings joy to the congregation.
