Music Ministry Team Addition

Music is at central part of our ministry here at Seaside. It infuses our worship with power and draws us in to a deeper connection with God both by teaching and by helping us to center our spirits during worship. We are blessed with many gifted musicians in our Choir, Praise Team and our numerous ensembles. But the leadership of this ministry gives it shape and sets the tone.
For more than a dozen years, Seaside’s music team of Kathryn Parker and Lynn Enzor have overseen enormous growth. The Praise Team’s growing repertoire and the increasing demands for accompaniment for the choir mean that the absence of even one of our leaders creates a bind. Add to that the demands on Lynn in her “other life” as a bank manager, and we began to recognize the need for a third person in Music Ministry leadership.
After more than a year of discussions and search, we are pleased to announce the addition of Janette Schroeder to our Music staff beginning May 15th. Janette joins us as Assistant Music Director for Traditional Worship. She will be playing organ as well as piano and will help with the duties of directing our choirs, handbells and other ensembles. Janette has an extensive background in music ministry and we are excited to include her in our program.
The addition of Janette will allow Lynn to focus her considerable gifts on the oversight of the praise team ministry and our 9:30 worship service. Her new title will be Assistant Music Director for Contemporary Worship. Of course Kathryn continues to capably fill her role as team leader and Minister of Music for the church. Janette will provide accompaniment and other roles at 8:00 and 11:00 each week.  Of course each is capable of pinch-hitting when needed!
Thank you for what I know will be a warm welcome for Janette and for your continued support of our music ministry.

Choir Loft Construction

In the nine years since the construction of our present worship center, our choir has tripled in size. We have made use of an ever expanding collection of portable risers to accommodate this growing choir. Over these years, we have dreamed, planned, designed and redesigned a permanent choir loft for our worship space. In May of 2015, the project was undertaken in earnest, first with a capital funding campaign, then with construction beginning in February of 2016. On May 2, 2016, the visible and physical part of the project was completed as Sauder Chruch furnishings delivered and installed new seating. Though two additional related pieces of this project are still outstanding, we are moving ahead with plans for a dedication of the choir loft on June 5 during each of the three morning worship services.

Below is a slide show of the construction of the new loft from beginning to end.
