I hope to incorporate you and your talents into our weekly "Worship from Home" resources as a way to further promote our varied yet unified voices each week. I am certain we can agree that it would be wonderful to see faces of our friends during this shelter in place period. Please send videos of singing, dancing, playing an instrument, or any other kind of special music idea that you think might suit our services. If you need assistance with any aspect of this request, please feel free to reach out to me, Music Director, Andy Mathews, at
