I hope this new year is off to a great start for all of you.   It is time for our musical rehearsals to begin!  We have chosen “Back to the Cross” from Word Music for this year’s musical. The story is about a group of kids at VBS who end up traveling through time back to the “tubular 80s,” “roaring 20s,” “Wild, wild West,” “Radical 60s,” and Gethsemane as well as into the future.  It is going to be a lot of fun!  You can take a listen to get an idea of the roles and music at http://wordmusic.com/backtothecross.html.  Scroll to the bottom of the page for song clips.
    Our first rehearsal will be Sunday, January 18th immediately following the 10:45 service.  There will be a pizza lunch available to purchase (made by our own Tami Wagoner).  If you are not interested in the pizza meal, bring a bag lunch to eat while we listen.  There will be sign-up sheets for both the pizza and a general sign-up for the musical this Sunday at the Welcome Desk.  This way, we know how many kids to expect for our first rehearsal.  We will listen to the musical and hold auditions at that first rehearsal.  We will have books and cds ready for everyone.  I hope that we will see you all at the first rehearsal.  If your child is interested in being in the musical, but cannot be at the first rehearsal- please let us know so we can have a pack ready for them.
