Bells & Choir

Let’s Make A Joyful Noise!

In Psalm 100, we’re instructed to “Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing and ringing.” Well, maybe we’ve taken a little creative liberty with adding ringing, but none the less, the choir and bells of Trinity love to make a joyful noise.

Parish Choir – Rehearsals are held in the church basement or balcony Wednesday evening at 7:30 pm, except during Advent and Lent when we meet at 7:50 after the evening service. Please join us – if you love to sing and you love God, singing in the choir is perfect for you! No prior singing experience is needed, just a willing heart. To join or find out more, contact Paul Soost at sooster67@yahoo.com.

First Floor Once In A While Choir (FFOIAWC) – the name says it all! This choir is for everyone (men and women, teens and adults) who wants to praise God with singing but cannot make a weekly commitment and/or has trouble getting up to the balcony. We sing “once in a while” at the late service, with a practice at 10:20am right before the service.  Since there isn’t a set schedule for rehearsals, if you would like to join us, please contact Glenda Frazier at whitemice@bellsouth.net for the next singing date.

Bells – Rehearsals are held in the church balcony Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm, except during Advent and Lent when we meet at 6:00 pm. We have room for more ringers, especially alternates! To join or find out more, contact Glenda Frazier at whitemice@bellsouth.net.

Make a More Joyful Noise Choir – a couple of times a year we extend an invitation for anyone and everyone to join the choir for a quick rehearsal and then to sing in a worship service together!  It’s a fun time. Watch your weekly news for the next invitation!  Below is a photo from our May 2018 group along with regular choir members.  It was so much fun!

 

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing and ringing. Psalm 100:1-2

Paul Soost

Choir Director

Paul Soost joined Trinity’s Parish Choir prior to becoming a member of Trinity Downtown! Paul has sung with church choirs since he was in kindergarten and finds the view from the choir loft preferable to sitting in the pews on the main level. By day, he’s a marketing professional for a nonprofit organization. He’s also a member of the Comfort Dog Ministry at Trinity Downtown. If you want to have a better view in church, enjoy singing (notice he didn’t say you have to sing well), and want to meet some great people, please email Paul at sooster67@yahoo.com for details on joining Trinity’s Parish Choir.  

Psalm 96:1 ~ Oh sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth!

Glenda Frazier

Handbells Director

Glenda was introduced to the amazing world of music at age five when her mother started giving her piano lessons. Over the many years since then, she has continued to play the piano and has sung in community, college, and church choirs; substituted (joyfully, albeit reluctantly) for the organist; and learned to play handbells. Glenda directs the Handbell Choir and would love to share the joy of ringing with more people. She is retired from the defense industry and is happy being a professional volunteer.  You can reach Glenda at whitemice@bellsouth.net
