Our goal is to perform at the 20th Anniversary celebration for PLUM. Please share this with all interested Congregation members. 


We are also interested in having a children's choir. If you have children who would be interested in sing on June 29th, please inquire about this with your congregations and let me know. We will then move forward with including "Jesus Loves Me" to the program.


Finally, for any Church organist or musicians that I have not spoken to, please let me know if you will be attending the event and whether you can play the organ during the service, do a prelude or postlude, or accompany the choir on their anthems. We want everyone who is available to participate.
