During May we hosted 50 architects from Raleigh/ Durham on a bus tour. They were touring modernis- tic homes in the Charlotte/Metro Region. Of course our church house came up. A very kind and com- plementary group of folks who were very impressed with our facility. They loved the worship space, pipe organ, and stained glass windows. May we always be grateful for the blessings we have to worship in such a beautiful structure.
As mentioned in previous articles, we will be making improvements to our worship center this summer. Anonymous donations will allow us to include up- grading in lighting, chancel space, choir area, and carillon. The sanctuary committee is working on getting bids/pricing for these projects. Soon we will all be seeing and hearing the difference!
The choirs of Holy Comforter are now on much needed siesta with regard to evening rehearsals. The church choir will continue to gather each Sun- day at 10:10 am to prepare for worship. The choir and congregation is reminded that Holy Comforter is open for worship every Sunday, regardless of the weather or school calendar.
Personal words of thanks to the members of the children’s ensemble and their drivers; not least of which are Maria Carr, Beth Brittain, and all the mom and dad support. This group has been very faith- ful and has demonstrated a willingness to serve in this ministry. We have heard them ring and sing over the past year. We would like to consider tak- ing this group to Lutheridge for a day tour. Shirley & Tommy Causby have volunteered to host lunch at their home at Lutheridge. Pastor John and Liz, who live there on the grounds, volunteered to assist with the tour. The challenge, when?
Currently we are trying to compile a master email list for the children’s ensemble family. Folks, give me your email addresses, even if you know I have it. If your child has not participated in the past, we invite that to change. Let me know if you would allow your child to become a part of this growing ministry. We do more than just sing. This is our future teen/youth group!
