come sing @ first

On the second Thursday of each month, from 6:00 to 7:00 in the evening, a small group of singers gathers for the simple purpose of singing together. Singing has proven to be a great way to de-stress, relax, have fun and meet some great new friends. You don’t have to be a professional singer! In fact, most who gather have modest experience with singing but are finding this a terrific way to engage their voice in a safe and comfortable environment.

What do we sing? Well, nothing too churchy. We usually start with something relaxing, often a song for peace in the world, our community and ourselves. We have a few favourites that often come up, like a song from South African, Babalela, which means “never give up!” The rest of the hour is filled with singing a variety of songs around a particular theme, such as love songs near Valentines Day, carols in December, songs about music or justice and peace songs. For the next few months our themes are:

  • October 11   DISNEY
  • November 8  SONGS FOR HUMANITY, HOPE & REMEMBRANCE
  • December 13   CAROLS

If you’ve never been to COME SING, please join us. It would fantastic to have more members of the church join this emerging group of neighbourhood friends.

Please e-mail Scott Weidler at music@firstelc.ca if you have questions or suggestions for songs to sing this month or in future gatherings.
