Come sing with the choir during No tie July! On Sundays at 8:30 or 11:00 you are invited to get up out of your pew and come sing the “Anthem of the People” from the chancel steps! Extra copies of the music are available on either side of the chancel. We are singing some of your favorite hymn arrangements this July: Precious Lord Take My Hand, His Eye Is on the Sparrow, Give Me Jesus, and It Is Well with My Soul! Listening Links are available BELOW!

Sunday, July 30 — It Is Well with My Soul
MSUMC organist, Carina Sturdy, is having a busy summer! When she is not here playing for summer worship at Main Street she is away at conferences studying and refining her organ and conducting technique. This week she is at Duke Chapel for the Royal School of Church Music in America’s Summer Course where she is serving as Assistant Organist/Conducting Scholar. Her responsibilities include some accompanying and conducting some of the student choirs, and she will play for parts of the worship services. This week-long event culminates in 11:00 Worship at Duke Chapel on Sunday, July 16 and a 4:00pm Evensong that same afternoon.
Earlier in June Carina went to the Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference of the American Guild of Organists where she was awarded second place in the Regional Competition for Young Organists. She also attended workshops and various recitals. Congratulation, Carina!
