Whether you sing in the Master Chorale or just in the shower, everyone is invited to a “Try-It-Out” choral immersion experience after the service on September 11. For 60 minutes, you will experience the actual process of a choral rehearsal and hopefully find that the Emerson Choir is a “good fit” for you. Contact Scott Rieker (firstname.lastname@example.org) or a choir member for more details.
EMERSON’S CHILDREN NEED YOU!
For young people to have a meaningful church experience, they need caring adults to play games, make art, and just spend time with them on Sunday mornings. YOU could be the grown-up who has an impact on their life! Our Religious Education program needs helpers for the last few Sundays of summer—especially in the nursery and preschool—and volunteer teachers for all age levels beginning in September.

The children of this church are lucky to have you! Email EmmalindaDRE@gmail.com with any questions, and thank you!
