MUSECC’s goal is to promote choral music in our churches:
. Beginning in the fall of 2016 MUSECC hired a new ministry intern, Yi-Ju. She will serve the FECC church plants in Michigan.
. The third volume of our unique choral anthem collection, Choral Praises Vol. 3 was published and about 20 copies were given out as samples to the participating choir conductors during the second Chinese Churches' Choral Festival on Oct. 1, 2016.
. Calida, a third year MDiv student at Fuller Seminary completed her music ministry internship at FEC-SGV, but continued to serve as assistant director with Vision and accompanied the Vision team to India during the summer.
. MUSECC also supported Vision in July 2016 and the FECG combined choir in early November 2016 on their short-term mission trips to India and Taiwan, respectively.
. MUSECC also a major supporter and co-sponsor of the second LA Chinese Choir Festival held on October 1 with participation of choirs and singers from FECC (both Cerritos and Fullerton campuses), FECG, and FECSGV.
Vision was invited by Serving Foundation International (SFI) to minister in India from July 7 to 25. Vision served in two orphanages, conducting a 4 day VBS at the SFI orphanage in Bangalore and at Peniel School in Madurai. In addition, the team ministered in the evenings at different churches and/or chapel services at Christian nursing schools. The Vision Team had 13 members (18 in total, including music directors and team leaders) consisting of young people mostly from FEC-Glendale and 1 person from FEC-Arcadia. Timothy Kim (FEC-Glendale), founder of SFI, preached the majority of the time and Calida Chu, FECA Music Intern also preached on several occasions.
