Worship Associates Blast-Off  Saturday, June 12, 10 AM to 12 PM

As we anticipate reopening our church and offering multiplatform worship services, all are invited to join Rev. Kimberley Debus, worship whisperer, to explore how to work with guests, choose worship elements, and support the flow of worship. This opportunity is for anyone curious, seeking to build specific skills and to (re-)join the worship program, or simply wanting to try, bringing goodwill and attention.
