Music Sunday, November 12, 2023

Twice each year, in November and March, our worship service is given over to music. Highlighting the incredible talents of our congregation’s singers, musicians, and dancers under the leadership of our Director of Music Ministry, Anne Watson Born, our music services invite contemplation, elevate the spirit, and celebrate the richness and diversity of our musical traditions.

Music Sundays for 2023-2024 are held on November 12, 2023 and March 17, 2024.
