“Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD…” Psalm 95:1
If you have been blessed with musical talents, we’d love for you to share your gifts with us! We have a robust musical ministry for adults including choir, handbells and instrumentalists.
Rehearsals: 7:15-8:45 pm, Wednesdays
Adult Choir rehearses Wednesdays from 7:15 – 8:45 p.m. and sings for both worship services Sunday mornings (with the choir dividing into 2 groups for services). In addition to singing weekly in worship, the choir participates in the yearly Thanksgiving Benefit Concert (to raise money for the Lake Travis Crisis Ministries). During the Advent season, the choir presents a Christmas cantata. During Holy Week, the choir joins with another local church choir to lead a Good Friday worship service, accompanied by orchestra. The choir also sings for local retirement homes several times a year. Contact Patty Highland, director, to join. However, No auditions are required to join!
Rehearsals: 6:15-7:15pm, Wednesdays
Adult Handbells rehearse Wednesday evenings, 6:15 – 7:15 p.m. The handbells share music in worship several times each semester. The bells often combine with the choir for special anthems.
Rehearsals: 5:00 pm, Second Sunday
The second Sunday of each month, LTUMC offers a Sunday Evening Prayer Service – a quiet, yet powerful, ecumenical candlelight communion service using mainly the music of the Taizé community, in Taize, France. Singers and acoustic instrumentalists are welcome to come join the Taizé Ensemble for rehearsal at 5:00 p.m. and worship at 6:00 p.m. The songs are easily recognizable, often a simple short phrase, repeated several times. The beauty of the music is not in its complexity, but, rather, in its simplicity and spirituality. For more information about the Taizé community, visit their website at: www.taize.com
ADDITIONAL MUSIC IN WORSHIP
Soloists (vocal or instrumental) often share music in worship. We are blessed to have many talented musicians to share their gifts – vocalists, woodwinds, brass, pianists, organists, and string players. We always welcome members to share their gifts. Contact Patty Highland, Director of Music, to discuss when you can share your musical talents.
