We know that children cant always nd the mute button. They would not be children other-wise! We love all of our families at St. Michaels, and that certainly includes our families with small children.

    THE JOYFUL NOISE, WE ARE ONEThe Joyful Noise was a contemporary Christian mu-sic ministry well known in the Capital District region and beyond, during the years of 1969-1993. The Joyful Noise was a large group of young people, led spiritually and musically by Mr. Bill Womer. The Joyful Noise was the core of what would later evolve into Christian Mu-sic Ministries. The positive side of social media, as well as the unfortunate passing of key members, has stirred interest in a reunion of The Joyful Noise, with the recog-nition, that still, We are One. A reunion is planned for October 10, 2015 focused on reuniting and catching up. The reunion will culminate with a barbeque dinner and an evening Praise and Worship service at Bethlehem Luther-an Church. Many of the songs spanning three decades when young lives were forever impacted by this experi-ence will be sung together again. We will also be including all the parents and family members in the Saturday night service who supported each of us during our JN years.

    During these early planning stages, we are interested in help locating former members, and identifying folks to assist on various committees that have been formed. Please visit the Facebook page for Christian Music Min-istries if you are a former member and want to con-nect, or contact us at
