Windham Chambers Singers – American Family Christmas Concert

Postponed Due to Weather – a new date will be determined

With thanks to the Messinger family (Craig, Jennifer and Meaghan) we have been allowed to share the annual American Family Christmas concert with our church family.   As with many events this year, the annual concert will be a virtual event and hosted online only.  For our church families who do not have internet access, we will be hosting a viewing event.   The suggested donation is a cash or check made out to The Good Shepard Foodbank.  The concert will be on December 5th at 7:30 p.m.   All who attend will be required to practice social distancing and wear a mask while at the viewing.  Space will be limited and we hope you will give preference to those who can not watch the event at home with their family.    Please contact the church office by phone or email to reserve a seat.
