Mission and Music Festival

During a potluck brunch to follow the service, Phillip will share a presentation on the good work the Lord is doing in Africa. Members are encouraged to bring "brunch food" such as egg bakes, muffins, coffee cakes, fruit, etc. As a bonus, Phillip will be providing a music workshop at St. Matthew on Sat, Oct 23 from 2:00-4:00pm for accompanists, vocalists, and those interested in the worship life of the church: "Leading and Guiding the Saints in Song: Nurturing Robust Singing in the Christian Congregation."
