Album Notes
Once upon a time, Jim married Sue...Sue's brother, Dave, married Jim's sister, Karen... and the "Vatral-Hammer Singers" were born. The group began traveling in 1987, as a public relations singing group for Eastern Nazarene College. Since then, they have appeared in concert at many churches, old-fashioned “down-home” church camp meetings (including Douglas Campmeeting in Douglas, MA, Portsmouth Campmeeting in Portsmouth RI, etc.) and other venues, sometimes appearing as "Rejoice." In 2011, the group was officially renamed to "Rejoice and Sing", and their long-awaited album, "Offering of Praise", was finally recorded.

The members of Rejoice and Sing grew up listening to the great hymns of the church. They were influenced early on by many of the original contemporary Christian artists of the 70’s…groups like Second Chapter of Acts, Dallas Holm and Praise, Andre Crouch and the Imperials, as well as many of the other popular secular artists of the time...the Carpenters, Barry Manilow and the Beatles. You can hear the influences of many of these groups in the style of their music.

As times changed, the members of Rejoice and Sing became actively involved leading worship in their local churches, singing traditional hymns and popular worship choruses by artists like Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Michael W. Smith and Paul Baloche.

In creating “Offering of Praise”, Rejoice and Sing wanted to produce a recording that would not only be fun and easy to listen to, but which would convey a spirit of encouragement, peace and love…something that would speak to the hearts of people going through difficult times in life. They wanted it to be a mixture of recognizable songs that would appeal to a wide range of ages, and a variety of musical tastes. The result is a great collection of uplifting worship and praise songs, including cover versions of popular contemporary Christian songs by Chris Tomlin, Ray Boltz, Newsong, brand new arrangements of some older classics, and a couple original worship songs as well.

The recording features Jim and Sue Hammer (you might also recognize Jim as the singer/guitarist/keyboard player with "CrossWalk"), Dave and Karen Vatral (Dave is the pastor of the Trail Church of the Nazarene in New Freedom, PA), with a few vocal appearances by Rebecca Hammer and Lauren Hammer, too.

This CD has something for everyone, lots of great harmonies, and terrific new arrangements of contemporary Christian praise and worship songs!

Here’s what people are saying!

“First of all I loved the album, I especially like "Jesus Messiah" … I think this album should do very well, it’s easy to listen to, it’s uplifting and you can feel the love and peace that comes from you guys' hearts. Even a "Rough around the edges rocker" like myself can sit and enjoy this music, it’s soothing and gives the message of hope and comfort…I love it!!”

“I am enjoying listening to the CD everyday…I play it while I’m getting ready in the morning and I take it in the car with me so I can listen on my way to and from work. I sent one to each of my family members! My family always attended Northeast Camp in Maryland. (70+ years for my Mom!!) After my Dad died, my Mom spent her whole summer at the campground. She helped maintain all of the flowerbeds on the property. My brother and 2 of my sisters rented lots to put their campers on for the summer. Then the district decided to sell the campground. They really miss Family Camp (the 10-day camp meeting). They are experiencing camp again this year with your CD!! The special music was always a big part of the camp experience.”

“About your CD, I love the singing and the message of the songs, but I am in awe of the background music and the creativity and work that went into it!! One of my favorite parts is in "Jesus, Messiah" with that strumming bass and percussion background. I think one of my favorite songs is "Arise, my Love." Powerful, to say the least.”
