Thanks to the members of the church choir who continually lead our services of worship throughout the hot days of the summer. Speaking of hot...we invite all cold natured Lutherans to sit in the balcony this summer. The air conditioning system for our 40-foot ceiling was not the best design in the 1950’s. Thus we sometimes must chill extra degrees to be able for the choir to survive.
We have signed a contract to repair the Carillon. The electrical system on the tower rendered the bells inoperable in October 2012. It will take a few months before the work can be completed. We hope to rededicate the Carillon by late summer. These repairs are being completed thanks to an anonymous benefactor.
At some point during the summer we hope to replace flooring in the chancel and choir areas. When these projects are being done we may need to relocate to the fellowship hall for a Sun-day. We will keep the congregation informed of our progress. These Sanctuary enhancements are also a gift from Holy Comforter benefactors. We are a very blessed congregation in so many ways. Those desiring to make gifts to Holy Comforter through living wills, stocks, life insur-ance, or other venues may speak with a member of church council or staff. There are many areas of ministerial need inside and outside our church walls.
Greg Cline and Elizabeth Bruchon will be representing Holy Comforter during music week at Lutheridge. There are activities for hundreds of participants of all ages. Campers and clinicians from many states, as well as other countries, participate in worship, instrumental, vocal, and spiritual growth opportunities. Thursday, July 11 a hymn festival is featured in Hendersonville. Friday, July 12 there are concerts literally all day long with closing worship/festival concert in the chapel on the summit of Lutheridge mountain. Any folks desiring to attend any of these events, contact Greg Cline.
Greg Cline, Music Director
