National Choir Appreciation Sunday! How Will You Celebrate?

Mark January 8, 2012 on your calendar! It’s time to show our appreciation to church musicians everywhere!  Join people nationwide in thanking the good folks in your church who share their musical talents with you every week.

J.W. Pepper is co-sponsoring the National Choir Appreciation Sunday event held on January 8th, along with CCLI and Sermonspice.   While musical volunteers should be appreciated every week, having a special day dedicated to this purpose will hopefully raise awareness of their special contribution to your church’s music ministry.

We here at Pepper have a warm place in our hearts for church musicians.  We get to meet many in our daily work — choir directors, instrumentalists, childrens’ choir directors.  We just had to help sponsor a special event that lets these folks know how much they are appreciated.  We see them give so selflessly for the life and vitality of their church.  They are a real inspiration to us.

Please help us spread the word to anyone who loves music as part of their church services.  Tell your music directors!  Tell your pastor!  How you celebrate the choir is up to you–a special announcement or blessing, a thank you note to the director, donuts and coffee after church or maybe just a smile and a handshake.  There are millions of people who sing out in praise every Sunday.   Join us in thanking that multitude of volunteers for the inspirational music they provide week in and week out!

Share with us how you celebrate the day on Facebook.
