- During communion, brass/woodwind ensembles move chairs, music stands and instruments in beside the railing to allow room for intinction communion.
- Suggested “uniform” for Easter Services is long sleeve, light-colored (e.g., white, yellow, powder blue) shirt with colorful Easter tie or scarf. But if you have another Easter outfit you really want to wear, that’s fine (but no t-shirts or shorts!!).
- Trumpet quartet: Suggest you bring a battery-operated stand light to the Sunrise Service, and clips or clear plastic laminate to keep your music in place (Hymn #’s 327 and 302 only). We will play on all three verses of both hymns. Descant on third/final verse.
