Bringing People Together Through Song 

Community Sing Alongs


Affirming Our Faith Through Song

This isn’t your average hymn festival! Children can and do inspire us in a variety of ways, which is just what they will do when we gather together to join in song. There are just 3 anthems and 6 hymns for children to prepare ahead of time. There will be reading opportunities for children as well.

Guest conductor Amanda Page Smith will rehearse and lead the children/assembly in song. For children in grades 3-8 (unchanged voices).
