The Wellspring UMC Choir
“I will sing unto the Lord, for He hath dealt bountifully with me.” ~Psalm 13:6
 
The members of our Choir live out that passage of Scripture and enjoy a special Christian fellowship at the same time! We sing classical and contemporary sacred works in a variety of musical styles.  We offer two anthems on the third Sundays of October-December and February-April, and we sing on Christmas Eve and on Easter Sunday. We welcome new singers anytime, so please consider joining us! Our rehearsals are a special time of prayerful choral singing and just a WHOLE LOT of fun! The Choir practices most Wednesdays from September through April from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Sanctuary and prior to worship on the Sunday mornings we sing.  The current schedule appears in the e-news and in the Sunday bulletin.  Questions?   Please contact the Director, Eileen Porter, by e-mail at hporter2@wisc.edu.  
 
The Wellspring Percussion Team
“Praise Him upon the high sounding cymbals!” ~Psalm 150:5
 
At least twice a year, a dedicated group of church members of all ages joins the Wellspring Choir to shake maracas, jangle a tambourine, or rattle gourd instruments handcrafted in Africa!  The Wellspring Percussion Team is an informal group that comes together to share the joy of God’s grace in Worship! The team generally practices only on the Sundays when it is scheduled to serve in worship. We have lots of rhythm instruments to “shake and rattle.”  You can help us “roll”!  If you would like to be part of this joyous ministry, contact the Choir Director, Eileen Porter, at hporter2@wisc.edu
 
Other Opportunities
“Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet! Praise Him with
stringed instruments and organs!” ~Psalm 150:3-4  
 
Wellspring UMC is blessed with members who truly enrich our worship by offering vocal and instrumental solos, including piano, or by singing and playing in small ensembles. Several members sing and accompany themselves on guitar. Choir anthems are often accompanied not only by piano or keyboard but also by flute or violin.  For anthems with a Caribbean flare, we are joined by saxophone and guitars! If you would like to share your vocal or instrumental talents with the people of Wellspring, please contact Eileen Porter at hporter2@wisc.edu.
