Music Notes

The choir will be on summer hiatus from July 20th until Homecoming on August 24th.  This leaves room in the service for anyone who would like to sing a solo, duet or trio, play an instrument, dance a liturgical dance or offer up a monologue during the 5 weeks this summer that the choir is off.  Let me know if you would like to participate in those services.
