Middle School Mission Choir (By Rick McCollum)

I had directed youth choirs for nearly 35 years when my wonderful youth choir fizzled out.  It took all I had to let it die a natural death.  This year, we began to dream a new dream, first for our middle schoolers.  We started a Middle School Mission Choir this spring.  The idea was to work on music that could be used in worship but also as a witness to others, combine that music emphasis with mission and ministry opportunities.  Our first outing was this past Sunday when we took 13 middle schoolers, a guitarist a pianist plus adults and sang for kids in a trailor park.  We connected with a ministry called Inside Out Of South Carolina.  I think we’re going to keep this going for a while.  Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity of music missions literally in our own backyard.
