  1. News : Lovefeast Choir Needs You!

    Lovefeast at Westminster—Sunday, December 2, at 5:00pm—is a very special experience. Our Lovefeast Choir consists of singers drawn from the Chancel Choir and the congregation and community as a whole.  All are welcome!

    If you love to sing Christmas music, but don’t have time to be a regular member of the Chancel Choir during this busy time of year, here is your chance to join in the fun with a very limited time commitment. Lovefeast Choir rehearses only twice, and singers are encouraged to attend both rehearsals. But even if you can only attend one rehearsal, we want you to be part of the experience.

    Rehearsals will take place:

    •  Saturday, October 27, 1:15—2:15 pm, Music Room.  Come at 12:30 pm to join us for lunch and meet fellow singers.
    •  Thursday, November 29, 6:15—7:30 pm, Sanctuary. This last rehearsal will be our only one in the sanctuary, with the organ.

    On the day of Lovefeast, December 2, we’ll meet in the Music Room at 4:00pm for a brief warm-up prior to the 5:00pm service.  Dress is Christmas apparel of your choice—the more reds, greens, silvers, and golds, the better!

The program will meet on Sundays, at 9:45am in Room 204 of the Mission Center. All are welcome.
