Yes, our new Contemporary Worship Team Leader Amy DeLeo Bellamy has the same name as our longtime member, Mrs. Rick (Amy) Bellamy . “I’m Amy Bellamy--your Amy’s sister-in-law. She is my husband’s brother’s wife.”(Get it?)
Now that you understand about their names, here’s the background on Amy D. Bellamy. She earned her Master’s in Vocal Performance from SUNY Binghamton. And she’s restarting Dave Hamilton’s contemporary music Praise Band here.
“Our main focus of this group is to worship and praise our great Lord and Savior and to lead our Congregation in worship,” she explains. “We’ll be leading music during the contemporary services. I’m looking for those people (male or female, youth or adult) who feel led by the Lord to be part of this musical worship team. “
The Contemporary Worship Team leads worship on the 3rd Sunday of each month. The Praise band will present band-like sounds. “We’ll hopefully sound more like what you hear on Christian Radio Family Life Network 93.9,” she said. “We hope to add more contemporary music—songs from Chris Tomlin, Paul Baloche and others.” Can you join our musical Praise Team?” We’re in need of singers and instrumentalists who are gifted by the Lord in the area of music. Interested people should contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. or #224-0691.
