“O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation! Let us come into His presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to Him with songs of praise! For the Lord is a great God, and a great king above all gods.

     O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand.”  – Psalm 95:1-3,6-7

Lent and Holy Week 2018 were glorious seasons of worship at Santa Fe Presbyterian Church. I want to express my appreciation to the Chancel Choir, Mustard Seed Worship Team, the Santa Fe Winds, the Youth Bells and various soloists and instrumentalists who helped make our special services even more special. The Palm Sunday cantata, Wondrous Love, was particularly meaningful for me, as the Chancel Choir blended their voices with the beauty of the Chamber Orchestra to proclaim God’s love and ultimate sacrifice (in spite of music stand malfunctions.) The Seder/Maundy Thursday service was beautiful in its simplicity, and I am so thankful to Leigh Miller for her ongoing leadership on guitar and Kathy Rule for her strong alto vocals in our worship experiences.

I look forward to a glorious Easter morning! The sunrise service is always uplifting, and we pray that the weather will cooperate. The 11:00 worship will have music provided by the Chancel Choir and Santa Fe Winds. I am SO proud of our Santa Fe Wind Ensemble, and I would like to thank them for their hard work and amazing presentation through the year!

ANY DREAM WILL DO:THE MUSIC OF ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER will be on May 20 as part of our Music on Santa Fe series. The concert will be at 6:30 p.m. and will feature our own Santa Fe talent, including the Chancel Choir, soloists, ensembles and instrumentalists. To refresh your “Memory”, Andrew Lloyd Webber is the creator of such Broadway hits as Phantom of the Opera, Cats, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Sunset Boulevard, School of Rock and many others. Please mark your calendars AND plan on bringing a special treat for our reception.

“O come, let us adore Him.”

In God’s love,
