Tomorrow we celebrate the end of an Awesome VBS!
Summer Choir Project with True Vine
This summer, we will join our voices with those from True Vine to present a musical celebration of our rich heritage in hymns and gospel songs. We will be working on ten new arrangements of classic church standards like Blessed Assurance, Sinner Saved by Grace, ‘Till the Storm Passes By, I Saw the Light, Take My Hand, Precious Lord , and many others. We will be singing these songs, complete with orchestra, on two Sunday mornings in September. Our first presentation will be here at Brookwood on September 15 and the second at True Vine on September 22.

We invite anyone who would like, to join us for this great opportunity to sing in a larger choir with orchestra. I am so excited to bring our two choirs together and I believe we have much we can learn from each other. The fellowship will be so sweet and God will be glorified! Please consider taking part in this very special summer project. Rehearsals begin Wednesday, June 19, 6:00 pm. We will have a few combined rehearsals planned throughout the summer as well. Listening CDs with highlighted voice parts will be available learn your music away from the rehearsal room.

Looking forward to this soulful celebration!
