Pastor Brewer (PB) would like to start a special musical ministry forstudents in grades 6-12. The purpose of this group would be to learn and present bible-based musicals initially. This would involve singing and eventually acting on the part of the participants. The first project would be a concert version of the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The music alone from the show would be sung. PB’s hope is that this project will be the beginning of an ongoing music ministry for young people. We are working on an initial date and time for an information meeting. More information to follow, but if you are interested email Pastor Brewer
