Christ Church United Methodist
Sunday, May 03, 2015
The Sixth Season of Sanctuary pays tribute to teachers, those who have given their lives to instill the healing gift of music in students; they invest knowledge, wisdom, expertise and, most of all, deeply rooted passion, the ground of true musicianship. Each concert highlights the performance of persons who find their greatest calling in the teaching vocation.
As this series has become established in our community, it has also become a source of generous support for those in need locally and internationally. These concerts are offered as a gift to the community. A free will offering will be collected with half going toward a stated mission project, and the other half used to defray ongoing costs.
