Hymn Festival
On Sunday, June 24 at 4:00, the adult choir and handbell choir will be teaming up to present a hymn festival, entitled: “With One Voice, A Celebration of Hymnody Through the Ages.”  This unique service will trace the development of hymns from the earliest chants to ecumenical favorites of today.  

Hymn Festival Dinner
Following the Hymn Festival on Sunday, June 24, the Missions committee will be hosting a fundraiser supporting our missionary, Rev. Carmen Ana Perez-Rios who is serving the Methodist Church of Puerto Rico.  Our offering, both at the Hymn Festival and at the dinner will be directed toward her work in the areas that were ravaged by Hurricane Maria.  If you can’t make the event, but would still like to support the cause, you may donate by sending a check to the church with “missionary” in the memo line.  If you have any questions about our missionary, you may contact Marie Gately at 249-1107.   

Annual Conference
Last week, the Adult Choir had the high honor of singing for the Service of Commissioning and Ordination for Annual Conference, held at St. Luke’s downtown.  In addition to helping lead the liturgical music and hymns, the choir teamed up with the adult choirs of St. Luke’s Edmond and St. Luke’s downtown for three rousing anthems.  We are grateful for this connectional opportunity and look forward to ways we can serve by singing outside of our own church doors!
