Festival Choir
On Saturday, October 8, 2022, we will have the opportunity to participate in a joyful worship service as we gather to welcome and install the Rev. Stacie Fidlar as our new Northern Synod bishop of the ELCA. For this special occasion, which will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church, 200 N. 1st Street, Rockford, we will have a Festival Choir. You, and members of you congregation, are invited to be a part of the choir. The Festival Choir will rehearse from 9:00am—10:30am on Saturday, October 8th at Trinity Lutheran Church. This will give us time to practice the anthem, the hymns and the liturgy before the service begins at 11:00am. Please encourage your choir members to be a part of the Festival Choir. It would be wonderful to have every church in our NIS represented at this exciting worship service. If you are interested in joining the Festival Choir, please contact Janis Kurth via email, jkurth73@yahoo.com.
