The work is being conducted by Walter Edmonds, (BA, Organ and Voice, Lycoming College; MD, Yale University; M Music, Choral Conducting, Temple University), well-known church musician and retired UMC Pastor from the Washington, DC area. Walt currently serves as Artistic Director of the Academy of Saint Cecelia Youth Orchestra, his vision that came to fruition September 11, 2001.
A PANCAKE BREAKFAST to support the work of the CPC Mission Ministry will be held this morning immediately after worship. Come enjoy a delicious breakfast of pancakes, sausage, fruit and beverages. A suggested donation is $6 per person, but whatever you can give to support our CPC missions would be greatly appreciated.
ATTENTION YOUTH! All students 6th-12th grades are invited back to CPC tonight from 6:30-8:30PM for ice cream and games. Weather permitting we’ll be outside to play corn hole, croquet, 4-square and Gaga. We’ll work up an appetite and then make ice cream sundaes as we anticipate summer vacation. Friends welcome! See Amy Lisk with questions.
WEAR RED ON PENTECOST! Please wear red to church next week as we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the church.
