Summer Singing Excitement Summer is almost here and the choir is on vacation… Well, not really. This summer the choir is doing something new: Summer Pop-Up Choir! Everyone is invited to join in the third Sunday of each summer month July 15 and August 19. The music will be fun and easy to sing. Get here at 8:15am so we can all rehearse together and then we’ll sing the song during the 9:00am service. Be a part of great music, laughs, and fellowship! No need to RSVP, just show up. If you have any questions contact Fred Sang, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents of Young Kids-Summer Picnics Being a parent is not always a picnic but being around other parents who also don’t have a clue about this parent thing can be. So let’s picnic together!
