Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
My name is Ken Cooper and I will be serving as Interim Director of Music through December 24. Some of you know me from when I served in a similar position in your congregation a few years ago. It is a joy to be back with you again.
For the next three months I will be the leader of your congregational music as well as the director of the Chancel Choir, Alleluia Handbell Choir, Refuge Rocks and Refuge Rings. During this time I will do all I can to glorify God through the ministry of worship and music and to provide pastoral support for all of you.
I will first be in worship on Sunday on October 15. But I am already working with the choirs and am looking forward to renewing acquaintances and making new friends.
Please come and introduce yourself to me. I am available to you personally on Sunday mornings, at firstname.lastname@example.org and at my home phone, 972-496-7850.
As many of you will know I was the Director of Worship and Music at First Presbyterian Church in Dallas for over 30 years. I am grateful that God continues to use me through God’s call to First United Methodist of Irving.
Grace and peace,
