The Music Program
Good Shepherd held a Christmas Eve Service this year which was attended by congregants who observed all Covid protocols. It was a celebration that the church has every year. Everyone enjoyed the singing of carols, the ringing of the bells, the telling of the Christmas Story, and the camaraderie in the sanctuary.
Since Covid, our Choir has disbanded until it becomes safe to gather to practice and sing. We have been blessed with individuals willing to lead the singing and occasionally sing a solo or play a piece on a musical instrument. Once it becomes safe for the choir to meet, standing close to each other, singing without using the plastic shields we now use for individual singers, the choir will again share beautiful music with the congregation both in church and virtually on Facebook or YouTube. Barbara Bayley is our talented Director of Music, organist and pianist.
Dore Davich is the director of our Handbell Choirs. Since social distancing and the wearing of masks can be observed with relative ease, handbells have safely shared music since Christmas and will continue to share with the congregation once a month, or so.
Beginners’ have begun to practice; soon, they will be sharing and then joining the rest of the Handbell Choir.
A group of young people come to share their music with us at least once a year. They travel throughout the US sharing their music with Veterans.
