Rev. Kevin Arensman of the First Christian Church has announced that he has accepted a call to the Sayre Christian Church, Sayre, Pa. He has been in Pittsburg the past 6 1/2 years, and has become known outside his church for his singing and songwriting.
...
Packing up 6 1/2 years of life to move from one home to another is hard to do, but Rev. Kevin Arensman, senior minister at the First Christian Church, and his wife, Shannon, are doing it. "Our last Sunday here will be July 14," Rev. Arensman said. He has accepted a call as senior minister at the Sayre Christian Church, Sayre, Pa., and will assume his duties around the first of August. "We have three weeks to get packed, unpacked and ready to go to work," Rev. Arensman said.
...
"Sayre is located in a river valley of the Appalachian Mountains," Rev. Arensman said. "It will be colder winters, but my wife and I still have our snowshoes and skis from our years in Colorado. I grew up in Michigan and got used to cold weather. You learn to enjoy it or you miss a good chunk of the year." The couple still have to sell their Pittsburg house, which is located outside town. "This is going to be hard, because we loved that house," Rev. Arensman said. "In Sayre we'll live in the parsonage next to the church. They're building us a pen for our dog." He has become known for his Heartwood Turnings, hand-crafted items he makes from wood, and said he'll take his wood-turning equipment with him. "They tell me there are a lot of hardwoods in the Sayre area, and with all the trees around, I should have good access to wood," he said. And, of course, he'll take his guitar and his music. "During my years in Pittsburg I've tried to lift up music," Rev. Arensman said. He started an open mic night, and said it will continue from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays at a new store opening at 108 W. Third.
...
"We'll have Ronnie Galloway on mandolin, Marty Self on bass  and Kyle Simpson on percussion," Rev. Arensman said. "They're most of the 'Junkyard Band' that played on the CD Dan Lingor and I did, and we played together on open mic night for years." He said that the group would be playing its standard repertoire, including some of his own compositions. "This will be a celebration of our time in Pittsburg," Rev. Arensman said. He started the First Pitt Guitar Club at the church, and said it will continue. He also hopes that the After School Art Program, started at the end of the 2012-2013 school year, will also continue. "It was very dear to my heart," Rev. Arensman said. He also originated the annual Horn of Plenty Food Drive, which benefits the Wesley House food pantry. Rev. Arensman said that Ellie Foster, pastor/director of Wesley House, and Brett Dalton will keep this event going.
...
Rev. Arensman said that the church will move to get an interim senior minister in place, then conduct a search for a permanent senior minister. "During the remainder of my time here, I will work with the congregation leadership and with regional staff to ensure that all preparations are made for the future minister and ministries of this church," he said. "I'm confident that God's blessing will be upon this congregation." He and his wife are looking forward to getting to know his new congregation, but won't forget Pittsburg. "I can't be the pastor here any more because they'll have a new pastor," Rev. Arensman said. "But I can still keep friendships going, and keep folks in my thoughts and prayers."

Patrick's People - Rev. Arensman
...
Rev. Kevin Arensman, right, and Dan Lingor, left, perform at the first open mic night of the season Thursday at Wheat State Pizza.
...
The event was started by Rev. Kevin Arensman, minister of the First Christian Church, and he is the most regular performer, playing guitar and singing. For the last year or so he has been  accompanied by Dan Lingor, retired Mt. Carmel Medical Center president/CEO, on one or another of his Native American flutes.
"We've been doing open mic nights for three years and haven't missed many Thursdays, except for Thanksgiving, Christmas and once when there was an ice storm," Rev. Arensman said. "We decided this year that we'd take the summer off for the first time, but now we're starting back up again."
He frequently plays his original compositions.
"I've written 120 songs, but wouldn't admit to about 75 of them," Rev. Arensman said. "I started writing to help me work through a lot of things in my life, and at first it was very private, but then I thought that the songs have a message."
He played several of his songs Thursday, including one he calls "The Leaves Keep Falling."
...
"I knew I was coming here, but I didn't know what it looked like yet," Rev. Arensman said. "The song is about being in between, when one thing has ended, one door has closed, and something else is coming." Other original songs he played Thursday included "Treat Me Tender," which has a country flavor, and "For You to See," which has an ecological theme.
"I was trying to think what the earth would say if it could sing about what we've done to it," Rev. Arensman said. "Try to imagine that Mother Earth is singing this."
It's a serious song, but the songwriter tries not to be downbeat.
"No matter how depressing a song might be in the beginning, I almost always have a hopeful ending," Rev. Arensman said.
...
Rev. Arensman said that all performers are welcome to join in open mic night.
"We're open to anything you can do in front of a microphone for a family-friendly audience," he said. "That includes singing, playing an instrument, poetry, comedy and tap dancing, but no knife throwing. We just try to keep a good atmosphere because there are often families here eating pizza."
He said that the number of performers and the size of the audience varies from week to week.
"Some weeks we may have 60 people in here listening," Rev. Arensman said. "We've had professionals come in for a night off from touring, so we sit back and let them entertain us. We've had jazz bands from Pittsburg State University that were fantastic.
He said that advance registration is not necessary.
"We're usually here by 7:30 p.m. every Thursday, and we put out a sign-up sheet," Rev. Arensman said.

Pastor Kevin Arensman is offering free group lessons for those who want to experience the joy of making music and playing the guitar. Bring a guitar if you can. Only a few loaner guitars will be available.
This will continue the church's efforts to offer a place for local musicians to gather together and share the love of music.
After offering the Acoustic Circle last winter, Pastor Arensman is beginning a new format on Monday evenings this fall: "Guitar Club. "Guitar players of all skill levels and interests are welcome to Guitar Club," Arensman said. "We'll begin all together with a lesson or a song and then we'll break up into smaller groups based on skill level or style of music. Then we'll get everyone back at the end for a final song together. The idea is to offer something which will meet more needs and interests."
The biggest interest was in beginning players last winter. The Guitar Club format will allow Pastor Arensman to give more focus to the beginners, but still allow the more experienced players to find new challenges and share ideas and techniques with each other. Other instruments are welcome for those who would like to play along with the guitar players.
"The main thing is getting people together and making music. And, I hope most players will sing along at least a bit. That's what got Arensman started playing the guitar as a teenager. He loved to sing along with the radio, listening to all styles of music, from country, to Motown, to classic rock. He bought his brother's guitar, learned a simple song he could sing along with, and he was off and playing.
Since his arrival in Sayre, a little over a year ago, Arensman has been playing quite a bit. He jumped in with the Praise Team that plays in worship on Sunday mornings, bringing some new songs and getting some of the youth involved.
...
"It's all about having fun, making music, and praising God," according to Arensman. Guitar Club will try to accomplish the same thing. "We won't necessarily be playing Christian music," he says. "But, we'll be having fun, making music in lots of different styles and genres. When you use your gifts and talents that God has given you, and share them with others, you have fun, you make people happy, and you make a better world. I don't know how you can praise God any better than that," he says.
Guitar Club will begin upstairs at Sayre Christian Church, 427 S. Keystone Avenue (enter by the Lincoln Street entrance), at 6 p.m., each Monday evening. The first 15 minutes or so will be all together, before dividing up into separate playing spaces for different skill levels and interests. The first few weeks will strongly emphasize the beginner lessons. Everyone is welcome any Monday. For questions or more information, call Pastor Kevin Arensman at (570) 886-0006.
