R.A.P. (Retired Active People)

RAP’s next gathering is Friday, December 14, 2018 at noon. Come and dine with us as we share a potluck lunch and celebrate the Christmas season!

We are delighted to share the musical talents of the Providence Brass Quintet, featuring members Eric Perkins and Debbie Schneider on Trumpet, Rob Hazel on the French Horn, Jake Schneider on Trombone and Frank Metzger on the Tuba. Also, joining them will be our fellow RAP member Dick Stuhrke on Trumpet. Members of the Quintet are all retired music teachers from Maryland and Delaware schools. We are so excited to have them entertain us with a selection of sacred and secular Christmas pieces and a time to sing-a-long.

Psalm 98:4-6 says, “Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises! Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody! With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD!” (ESV)

The Stuhrkes and the Haleys are our hosts in December. If you are interested in helping with the setup and/or cleanup, please let Caryl Stuhrke or Cindy Haley know. Don’t forget your covered dish, invite a friend or two, and come to enjoy an afternoon of fun, food and fellowship with us. Everyone is welcome!

Luke 2:11-13, “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God…”(ESV)

Come, and make a joyful noise with us as we celebrate the Birthday of our King!
