A message from Melissa . . .

The year of the COVID pandemic proved to be very challenging for everyone, and especially for people who create and perform music. This fall, community music organizations, schools, and professional performers in the fine arts are cautiously coming back to the rehearsal room and practice spaces. As Interim Director, I would like to keep the legacy of music at First Baptist Regina alive and well! I would also like to try new things and create new possibilities for our church.

I invite each of you to fill out the online form below to allow me to get to know a bit about you. My goal is to get as many congregation members as possible involved in our music ministry, and to establish the choir to sing one Sunday a month.

Please come and chat with me, email me (classicmel@gmail.com ), or visit with me before or after church. I will be there on August 29th and then from September 12th onward. Please do fill out the online form below so that I can get in touch with you. I can’t wait to see you at church, in worship through music!
