Summer Camp 2018

Last July we held our first Summer Music Camp. Twenty-one youth from kindergarten to eighth grade attended the five-day camp. This year we will be holding our Second
Annual FREE Summer Music Camp for children in grades K – 8 from July 16th to July 20th. During those days we will rehearse from 9:00am to 3:00pm each day and then
present “Once Upon a Parable” a biblical-based musical on Friday, July 20th at 6:30 pm.
“Once Upon a Parable” is a 45 minute musical which features stories of Jesus such as:
the wise man and the foolish man, the good Samaritan, the mustard seed, the parable of the vineyard, and the prodigal son, which is the centerpiece of the musical. Volunteers are needed. Please contact our Director of Music, Rich Barnett, for more info or to sign up: music@stlukerichmond.org.

Our music groups will begin rehearsals in the fall but new members can join at any time.  The Adult Choir rehearses on Thursdays from 7:30-9:00 p.m. beginning on Thursday, September 3, 2015through to June 2016.  Youth in high school are welcome to join the adult choir. This choir sings weekly at the 10:00 a.m. worship service and for special worship services from September through early June.

The Handbell Choir rehearses most Thursdays from 6:30-7:30 and welcomes new members. Please contact Joe Bucher through the church office to discuss our Handbell Choir.

Instrumentalists

Resurrection Brass Easter 2015St. Luke has a number of fine instrumentalists who join together periodically as an ensemble under the direction of trumpeter Calvin Vonada.  Those interested in contemporary music are welcome to join other instrumentalists to play on Youth Sunday, Rally Day and Un-rally Day, and other special services and social occasions.  Children who are able to play instruments have occasions to do so during regular Sunday worship.
