We welcome Dan Weckerly as our new Music Minister. Dan has been working in sacred music in various capacities since he was 13 years old, beginning by playing the organ for school liturgies at his home parish in Delaware County. His original focus was organ, which he studied privately for more than a decade. Since then, he has expanded his skills to include piano, vocal, conducting and composing. Full time, he works for a public relations firm in Bethlehem Pa. Dan lives with his wife of nearly 30 years and his three daughters in Limerick, Pa. He enjoys reading, writing, travel and training with his Labrador Retriever, who has several obedience titles and is a certified therapy dog.
We would like to Thank Betsy for her time and talents acting as our interim Minister of Music for the month of December 2017 and for her enthusiam to step in when needed for a Sunday service
Adult Choir—Our Adult Choir leads our worship services on Sunday mornings, and presents two cantatas during the church year. We met on Thursday nights at 7:30 pm to rehearse a wide variety of anthems and again on Sundays at 10:30 am to prepare for worship. If you have a heart for music, please feel free to drop by on Thursday evening to see what we’re about. All are welcome!
Children’s Choir—The Children’s choir in taking a hiatus. They usually meet on Sunday mornings at 9:15 am to sing and ring! Learning both contemporary worship songs and traditional children’s anthems, along with handbell rehearsal keps us all busy on Sundays before our faith formation classes.
Handbells—Ascension UCC has been blessed with a 3 octave set of Schulmeric handbells. We hope to start this program soon
