Music for Church

We have so much musical talent in our congregation and we want to use it to the fullest.  Thus, John N. and Michael G. have taken on the responsibility to help identify, expand and coordinate this talent for our worship services.

Talk to them about your ideas, tell them about your talents and let them know what you want to do to help make our music the best it can be.

Shepherd’s Strings Played for Residents at Autumn Place

On Monday, August 23, the Shepherd’s Strings played for the residents at Autumn Place in Joplin.  Linda D. introduced the members present for this performance.  Janet C. gave a history of the dulcimer and harp instruments.  Janet S. played a solo on her Banjo dulcimer, which is one of the newest instruments in the Shepherd’s Strings.  While this was their first venture, the group felt their efforts were very appreciated and the residents sang along with enthusiasm.  The ladies look forward to playing at Care Centers as a way of sharing the joy of music with those whose entertainment is limited.  The group would very much appreciate adding a guitar and other string instruments.  We encourage anyone with an interest in this ministry to come enjoy the fun.  Leann B. was not able to join the group at Autumn Place, but we wanted to include her picture because she plays with the group and was very instrumental (no pun intended) in getting the dulcimer group started.  The Shepherd’s Strings will be playing for both services on Rally Day, Sept. 12.
