Welcome Dawne Mechlinski

Hello Church in Brielle family!
Below is my introductory video to all of you. I am very excited and blessed to be called to be your new Music Director! Please take a moment to watch.

We have a few opportunities on the horizon for our music ministry, keeping in mind all safety proximity and protocols…
*Beginner handbell ringers, teens and adults
*Seasoned handbell ringers, teens and adults
*Youth Ringers, 6th grade and up
*Small ensemble singing, (2 or 3 at a time, safely distanced)
*Praise Ensemble members, singers and/or musicians, any age
**please note, a return to larger group indoor singing will be feasible once CDC guidelines permit.
Please email if you are interested in trying something new (now is the time!!) and/or joining again in music ministry. Pass the word to friends and family! I’m looking forward to safe gatherings, lots of music, prayer and laughter!
Also, in an attempt to begin to know your church community it would be so helpful if you could take a few moments to share a few of your thoughts. Feel free to write your responses right next to the questions as you hit “reply” to music@churchinbrielle.org. Be as detailed as you wish!
