Chancel Choir Director and Organist, Connie Clarke

Connie has been serving congregations as an organist and choir director since she was 14. She is grateful the Lord put people in her path to guide and direct her through foolish youth so that choosing to use her musical skills to serve became a clear direction for life’s work. She has served in seven different congregations and each one has taught something new and fresh about the worship of our Lord. The two that made a huge impact were playing for the residents at the Rosewood State Hospital and St. Luke’s A.M. E. church one summer. To hear the voices come alive of the profoundly impaired as a familiar hymn was heard was truly amazing.  Likewise, to hear the spirited voices and deep emotion at St. Luke’s was unlike anything her trained ear had experienced. They taught Connie to let go and express what is in her heart.  Now retired from teaching music in public school, she is grateful for every day she has to serve the Lord through song, playing the organ and leading the Sandy Mount United Methodist Church Chancel Choir.
