Piano Players Needed This Summer
Reveille’s pipe organ is taking a summer vacation for repair and renovation of the keyboards and pedalboard. It will return in early September. During the summer months, we will use our Steinway concert grand piano. We are seeking pianists who would like to offer preludes and postludes during 11:00 am worship. If you are interested, please contact Cathy Armistead. 

Everyone is Invited to Join Summer Choir
During the summer, you are invited to sing in the choir at the 11:00 am worship service. There are no rehearsals and no choir robes. Simply come to the choir room at 10:30 am, learn the anthem and service music, and then help lead worship music from the choir loft. All ages are welcome!
