Back by popular demand, organist Nathan Bayreuther will once again play half-hour organ recitals on Fridays, October 16, 23, and 30 from 12:15-12:45 pm. 
Listeners are encouraged to come to the Green and listen to the organ broadcast through the steeple speakers or join him live on the church’s Facebook page and enjoy a variety of music, including variations on favorite hymns, large organ works, and spookier music as we get closer to Halloween!
If you do drive to the Green, please continue to observe social distancing. We hope you enjoy this informal, end-of-the-week offering of music!
