Those that ordered tunics and ties will be able to pick them up at the concert. Come a bit early to take care of that.
Last call to reserve a lunch or dinner. Also you must let us know on that form if you want to be seated (this is for choir only–orchestra automatically get seats. 🙂 EVEN IF YOU DO NOT WANT A MEAL, please fill out the form so we know that as well. GO TO THE FORM NOW
About 30 of you are still not a part of our WhatsApp group. You miss out on important information and prayer needs that are shared in the group. Here’s the link to the information to join.
You can find the concert order here. Be sure to have your music in order.
Everyone will receive a new TWO-SIDED name tag on September 11 (they were supposed to be 2-sided last year!). Returning people may want to hold on to your old tag in case you lose the new one. Please just remove the lanyard from your old tag and use it with the new one you will receive. We will have extra lanyards, if needed. We hope these name tags will be used for at least two years, so please take good care of yours.
Remember to pray for our worship concert, for those attending, for our choir, orchestra and leaders, and for yourself particularly. Pray that God will transform lives.
