PRAISE AND HARMONY WORKSHOP

As has been announced the Praise and Harmony Workshop will be January 13-15 at Central. This workshop is for everyone. You do not need to know music theory or be able to read music. The workshop is structured so we can learn songs by listening which is the way most of us learned. Between now and January we need to be preparing for the workshop. Beginning TONIGHT from 6 pm til 7 pm in the Old Auditorium we will begin learning new songs. We would also ask that the LIFE Talks, all various ministries, families and individuals use your time together to for preparation. To aid in this process everyone will have access to the Praise and Harmony website free of charge for the next 3 months. Below are the instructions and access code to the Praise and harmony website. Also listed below are the songs we will be learning.
