1) ALL Grade K-2 Students will be
part of a musical on Friday, Oct. 25 in the morning and later that
8:45am & 7:00pm - Kind-Scheer, 1-Boyce,
9:45am & 6:00pm - Kind-Nauta, 1-Pingel
PLACE: St. Paul's
*In order to give students a better rehearsal and performing
experience, we have decided to split into 2 performing groups.
There will be a Kindergarten, First, & Second grade class in
each group to allow for a unique experience of working with other
ages. Our goal is to give every student a chance to shine with
a speaking line as well as singing. Each performance should be
about 30 minutes.
2) Gr. K-8 sings at either 9:30 (A-K families) or
11am (L-Z familes & JuBellate) for Reformation.
see more info below... A new schedule for 2019-20 is
available through the online calendar at calendar.splgrafton.org. You can
narrow what you see by choosing a group from the dropdown menu or
search terms in the box at the top.You will also find the
individual group schedules on the MUSIC SCHEDULES page at the
right. Information about individual songs is
posted on the Song Lyrics page at the right.
3) Planning ahead...Christmas services for
students will be at different times. Pre-K
and Kindergarten will have their services on a Saturday morning,
Dec. 14 at either 9 or 10:30 am. Grades 1-3 will have their
service on Dec. 11 at 6:30 pm. Grades 4-8 will have
their service Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 6:30 pm. [NOTE the grade
4)Helpers are needed for running
powerpoint in chapel/weekend worship services (all
year long). If your 6th grade student (or older) would
like to do it, please contact me. There is a sign-up on the
church side of splgrafton.org under Servant Ministries and then
Media Ministry or go directly
at SignUp.com: http://signup.com/go/8Qfkxv .
With 5 services every weekend, there are many opportunities to
serve. The first couple times, it is helpful to have a parent sit
with them to assist if necessary. Powerpoints are used, but 10-15
minutes of training will explain the unique aspects of our setup
and things to be aware of in worship.
5) Playing piano/instrument for
worship is a great way to encourage students to
use their gifts for the Lord. Often classical pieces are
fine to use in worship or there many levels of piano books
with hymns and worship songs in them. Pieces should be practiced to
their very best so as to assist (not distract) in worship. I want
to encourage students of intermediate skill level or higher to aim
for playing in church. Students at an elementary skill level can
aim to play for chapel services. Please
contact Miss Bremer if you are interested - even if a piece isn't
ready or not even chosen yet!
