Greetings from the FPCD music folks!  You might notice a couple of differences in the choir and bell choir personnel. I have had to take a brief break from weekly church responsibilities to take care of some extra work at Stetson through the end of February as well as tend to family matters.  I am delighted to have two of our Choral Scholars step in for me under the mentor ship of Dr. Ann Small.  Kelly Wildermuth is a second semester junior music education major from Atlanta, and she will, along with Ann, be conducting the Chancel Choir.  Jason Schmidt is a Florida native - he is a music major doubling in psychology, and he will lead the Handbell Choir.  Please give these fine students your love and support!  Dr. Small was THE music education person at Stetson before she retired.  In other news, we will be ordering choir chimes to be used in services soon - they should add a lovely dimension to worship during Lent and Easter.  This is a perfect time for anyone to join the Chancel Choir - please don't hesitate!  Anyone interested in the Handbell Choir should contact me directly.
