Music That Makes Community

When: October 16 - 18, 2017
Cost: See price chart below

Join a dynamic gathering of musicians, clergy and lay people and recharge and renew your congregational song leading skills. A lively team of Music That Makes Community presenters will lead worship, workshops, and conversation to help you add the valuable tool of paperless song leading to your community’s singing practice. Learn practical skills and diverse repertoire, and explore how paperless music can enrich and expand your congregation's repertoire of sung prayer and praise.

Music That Makes Community is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help people connect and learn through singing. We do that by developing and teaching a practice of paperless song leading grounded in a theology of welcome and generosity for the benefit of musicians, clergy, congregants, students and lay leaders who want to use the practice to enrich and enliven their worship and community life.

The three-day workshop begins at 10 am on Monday, October 16 and ends with lunch on Wednesday, October 18. Attendees will have the option at registration to check in early on Sunday, October 15. Otherwise check in begins at 9 am on Monday, October 16.

The costs of this incredible event are subsidized by a generous grant from Region 7 of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.
