Music Reading Seminar
Ever wish you could read choral music more quickly and efficiently? Chris Johnston, director of the chancel choir at Epiphany Lutheran church in Dale City, who teaches music for the Fairfax Public Schools and conducts the NVCC-Annandale Symphony orchestra, held a three session seminar on music reading Thursday evenings in July. There was no cost for the seminar, and no special level of musical experience was necessary. All of the lessons have been recorded and are available on youtube. Please click on the part below that you would like to view.

Lesson 2: How to Read Musical Notes: Part 1 or Part 2

The Epiphany Book Club will have its next meeting on September 20th at 7:30 pm--we meet at the Starbucks near the corner of Hoadly Road and the Prince William Parkway. The book we are reading this month is Evidence of Life by Barbara Taylor Sissel.
Vacation Bible School was held July 26, 27, and 28th from 9:30 until noon; our theme this year was "Who is Jesus?" We had 21 children who attended and we had Bible stories, music, snacks, games, and crafts. Thanks so much to everyone who helped out--either by coming and helping during the day, or contributing for supplies and snacks. Also, thanks to those who cleared the playground of weeds so that the children could play.

Join us after service on October 16th for our next monthly 3rd Sunday Potluck. We ask for those with last names A-L to bring a main dish to share and those with last names M-Z to bring a side dish. Members of the caring Ministry Team will provide dessert. As always, those who help with set-up and clean-up are greatly appreciated!
