 Midsummer and it is already time for Gospel Choir rehearsals.  We begin on July 17, Wednesday evening from 6:30 until 8:00.    Gospel Choir Director Marie Flowers will be working again this year with Everrett Parker, Music Director at Shiloh Baptist Church and retired Gospel Choir director at LSU.   Marie Flowers, along with Everrett Parker and Steve Crump craft a service around the history, beauty and impact of Gospel music.  The choir is open to all who want to sing Gospel music.  The services are August 11 at 9:30 and 11:15. 

 During our June services, we heard several of our musicians in small ensembles.  We will hear Helen Hoffpauir, Marie Flowers, and Cathy McManus as the HeartVoice Trio returns to provide music for the services on July 14.

 Cathy McManus and daughter Loren Wilkinson bring some unexpected and beautiful music to the services on July 21. 

 On July 28, Debby Duckworth sings a Randy Newman song about our indifference to the world around us.  Janina Fuller will be our guest pianist.
