Friends of Music at Heavenly Rest

Friends of Music


The Church of the Heavenly Rest has established the “Friends of Music” program which is overseen by a committee and lead by music assistant, Susie Rockett. Susie has been working to further develop the wonderful things our music ministry provides. Our church musicians play an integral role in our weekly worship services, but they also make themselves available for weddings, funerals and other special church services. Their gifts bring the most exquisite music to life in harmony with the beauty of the nave.


Becoming a Friend of Music at Heavenly Rest would be giving your support to the music being made in this church. Your involvement can be as a church musician, monetary supporter, or simply a connoisseur of fine music. Whatever avenue you wish to take part in we are happy to have your participation. Friends of Music will receive a monthly newsletter with information about upcoming concerts, events and what is happening with music and musicians here at Heavenly Rest. You will also be recognized on each Chamber Music Concert Series program. We hope to include you on our list of Friends of Music.
