  Songleading for Justice

After service on August 18, join us for a special workshop with our guest speaker, Matt Meyer. In this participatory workshop, you will build skills and confidence for leading music in worship or in the streets.

We’ll share best practices for invitational leadership and gentle encouragement to singing. We’ll also expand your repertoire for singing without accompaniment. Join us for an experience of leading and following, rhythm and words, and the sound of a community in harmony together.

No musical experience necessary.

Fee: No charge. A free will donation for this event would be deeply appreciated.
Details: Sunday, August 18, 12-1:30 p.m. Please register in advance if possible; however, drop-ins are warmly welcome.
