6:30pm - 8:00pm
Vista Drums is the new inter-generational drum circle at Monte Vista. The first gathering will be THURSDAY, FEB 8 at 6:30pm, and will continue every 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. For those of you who have been waiting for us to start up a drum circle, no explanation is necessary!
For the rest of you, some background: remember the "21 Thursdays" series back in 2010? One of the most enjoyed activities of that series was the inter-generational drum circle. It sometimes drew as many as 25 people, and everyone had a great time with it. Since that series, those drums have been seldom used, gathering dust for the most part in the bell closet. Well, last August, we decided to pull out the drums and use them as the call to worship at the Installation service for Pastor Dawn. All of a sudden, people got excited again about the use of drums in worship!
Starting up a mid-week drum circle is as much about community and inclusivity as it is growing a talent pool of drummers for those Sundays when joyful drums would be a terrific addition. Our first facilitator is Ricky Carrido, whose extensive credentials and life-long love of percussion will be obvious to all!
So come give drumming a try! No prior experience required and all ages welcome! Bring a friend! It's a great way to invite neighbors and friends to church! Plan on joining us every 2nd and 4th Thursday at 6:30 and COME FIND YOUR GROOVE!!!
