OPPORTUNITY FOR MUSICIANS
If you have had interest in using your talents for our worship services, we are looking for vocalists and instrumentalists, including those who play keyboard, brass, woodwinds, strings and percussion. Please contact Ann Elmore or Matt Shaw for more information. You may also pick up a brochure on the information wall.
Just a reminder that our library is a great resource for you. We have over 1,700 items in the library. We invite you to try our automated selection process and check out a title. If you don’t find a patron card with your name on it at the desk, you can use a ‘generic’ one the first time and we will then create a checkout card especially for you. The instructions are printed on a display by the checkout computer.
Remember you can keep up with church-wide events at Harvest through our website. The website features a calendar that links to our office and displays large-group events that are upcoming at Harvest. You can find this and much more at www.harvestefree.org.
