Worship Choir

Carol Ashbrook

  The goal of this class is to show the students the importance of worship in our relationship with the Lord. My prayer is that while the students use their musical gifts during their worship time in class, they will grow in their desire to encourage others into worship at our HERC monthly worship rallies. During our class sessions, we will work on various familiar worship songs but also learn some of the good "oldies" and beautiful hymns which are rich in scripture. Students will be taught harmonies and parts based on ability and these will be "changed up" regularly to allow them to recognize their gifts and strengthen their weaknesses.   On the first Thursday of each month our class will lead the HERC Worship Rally, giving us the wonderful opportunity to draw the tutors and students close to our Lord Jesus in worship and prayer.  Following each rally, we will start our class time with a discussion of how the rally went, some good fellowship, and ....pizza.  Students always look forward to this blessed time as we really grow to know each other more with each passing month.     Contact Carol Ashbrook with questions or to be added to Temporary Class Roster <This email address is being protected from spambots.
