Supper at Six – Sunday, September 16th. @ 6pm.

Sunday Supper at Six, September 16, 2018 6-8pm

Join us for Supper at Six in the Massapequa Fellowship Hall. This is a wonderful opportunity to spend time and get to know each other a little better!  All members of our united congregations are invited to attend. Please bring a friend or family member. Children are always welcome and there are always activities to keep them busy.

At our September dinner each attendee is asked to bring a potluck dish and a wrapped gift that is valued at no more than $10. The gift can be purchased or be a re-gift. We will again conduct our wild and crazy gift swap!

Joan and Joe Tischner and Ralph and Ruth Dettmann will provide the set-up, beverages and desserts for this dinner.

Please RSVP to Joan or Joe Tischner.

We will meet again on Sunday, October 28th and Sunday November 18th.

 

Choir Welcome Back Luncheon – Tuesday, September 4th. @ 1pm

Our music program will be starting up once again. We will begin our

program year with a luncheon on Tuesday, September 4 at 1:00 p.m. in

Westminster Hall which is the choir rehearsal room. All are invited. I will

have a sign up sheet for what you would like to bring.

 

The luncheon will be followed by the first rehearsal of the One Voice Choir

at 2:00 p.m. One week later, the Youth Choir will have its first rehearsal.

That rehearsal will be on Tuesday, September 11 at 6:30 p.m.

 

At this point the rehearsal for the Handbell Choir is to be announced,

although the best time to consider for this may be Monday night. I am also

considering having an alternative choir rehearsal for the One Voice Choir

on Monday night. This could be a brief rehearsal for several people who

can’t make the Tuesday afternoon rehearsals because of work. It may also

bolster the ranks of our choir which would be great. If you have any

comments about the possibility participating in either of these two

rehearsals, please let me know.

 

I look forward to seeing everyone back.
