The Return of Choir and Handbells
Choir and Handbells will return to rehearsing and participating in worship beginning in September 2021. We will have the same rehearsal times as previously - Wednesday 5:45-6:45 pm for handbells and 7:00-8:00ish for choir.
Returning to music after such a long break will be a challenge. Music is similar to exercise. If you take more than a year off, you can reasonably expect to be weaker. That’s OK! We are all in the same boat, probably feeling a little self-conscious about our voices and abilities. We will be starting very slowly and building from there. It will be a huge blessing to finally be able to make a joyful (regardless of musical quality) to the Lord in person together again!
Now is a great time for new members to join! If you are interested in trying either group (or both), please contact Tabitha at or text or call 708-804-0300.
Rehearsals and services will be conducted with current CDC guidelines in place. These guidelines may change if the situation warrants it. Currently, SSM is a mask-friendly church. Unvaccinated individuals are expected to wear masks. Vaccinated individuals may choose to wear or not wear masks. Everyone is asked to please refrain from asking others about their vaccination status.
