After a wonderful 3 years of service and community at Memorial Baptist Church, I am leaving my position there to become minister of music at the United Methodist Church of South Hadley, Holyoke and Granby, in South Hadley where I live. It is a bittersweet transition as I know and love both congregations. But I am glad to be able to serve at my neighborhood church.
I wanted to give Memorial a thank-you gift of music on my last day. So next Sunday we will have a short concert and hymn sing at 11:45am immediately after worship. Lunch will follow.
I will also play some movements of the French Suite no. 4 by Bach as service music.
(It is okay to come for the concert and lunch and not for the church service, and in fact, at least some other people will surely be doing that.)
