Blessing of the Piano

On Sunday, we blessed the gift of  Ellen Hoyt-Howe’s grand piano from her family in her memory. Ellen loved music especially the old hymns with close harmony. Her wish was that her piano come to us so that it could be used to make beautiful music in His name.

Music was lifted up throughout the  reflecting Ellen’s love for music and her strong faith. The piano was played by our talented music director, Marcus Schlegel, and accompanied by our  guest cellist, Will Hayes. The choir piece, Beautiful Savior, and the solo, Write Thy Name Upon My Heart, included beautiful piano accompaniment as well as flute played by Elle and cello.

We were so pleased that the family was able to join us and share in this celebration of Ellen and her strong faith.
