We Welcome our Music Intern, Annamarie Engler

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ: 

Several months ago, Jackie received an unusual e-mail from a college student asking for help finding housing in Cape while she was an unpaid music therapy intern at Easter Seals. Jackie forwarded the message to me with a note, “Is this something that we can do anything about?” At first, I was not sure what we could do. I wanted to help, but doubted whether our congregation had anything to offer her. However, when I reviewed Annamarie’s qualifications, it jumped into my head that it would be beneficial for our congregation to have her help with our music. When I presented this to our Diaconate, Tom Schild quickly stated that he thought that Annamarie might be able to stay at their house. I told him to check with Linda! As a result, Annamarie is going to be serving as our Music Director Intern starting this August. She will be working with Bev and the choir to add variety to our music. She should be with us until February 2016. Let’s show Annamarie our Southeast Missouri hospitality and prayerfully consider how her time with us can enrich our worship. Please welcome her and as her time with us unfolds, give her honest and encouraging feedback on her efforts. Let’s all pray that this is a positive learning experience for both the congregation and Annamarie.

Hello Evangelical United Church of Christ,

Thank you so much for inviting me into your church in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. My name is Annamarie Engelhard, and I am coming from Longmont, Colorado. I attended Colorado State University where I completed all the coursework for a Bachelor of Music in Music Therapy degree. My final requirement is to gain hours of clinical practice in my field.  I am coming to Cape Girardeau this August to complete a 6-month internship with Easter Seals Midwest to fulfill that requirement. Easter Seals Midwest is a clinic for children with autism. At the clinic I will be providing music therapy to children to help them obtain the skills they need for daily living. I love working with children and am very excited about my time at Easter Seals. Being born in Nebraska and having lived in Colorado most of my life, I have not spent much time east of those borders, so this is a new experience for me. Having spent my life in very small towns to small cities, it sounds like Cape Girardeau will be the perfect intermediary. I look forward to getting to know its people and culture.  I myself was blessed to be raised in a family centered, godly home where much of my childhood was spent working on my grandparents’ farm and in the family business. I began music lessons at an early age and have since learned to play a variety of instruments. Music has always been my biggest hobby.

Now that it is my profession, I have allowed my hobbies to expand. I love the fine arts and enjoy painting and creating. I have always enjoyed the outdoors and spend time hiking, kayaking, camping, and climbing. I love to explore, but unfortunately I was not endowed with the gift of navigation. Quality time with other people is very important to me.  Thank you again for welcoming me into your community. I look forward to this new journey!
