Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Greetings in the Lord! Happy New Year! Once again we would like to thank you for your musical, spiritual and financial support to our ministry. 2017 will be a special year for us since it’s ATCECM’s 35th anniversary. When we look back how God has led us and bless us throughout all the years, our hearts are filled with humility and gratitude.
This year we are going to start off with the “Church Choral and Conducting Workshop”, lead by David Chin from Rochester. The purpose of the event is to strengthen the choral music ministry in local churches. It will take place on Feb 23, 24 and 25 at Carmel Logos Baptist Church (Map) (225 Consumers Road North York, Ontario M2J 4G9).
Some choir members have expressed that they would like to join the workshops but their church choir can’t make it. We are pleased to inform you that the workshops are now open to individual participants. Please see the attached photo for schedule and fee information.
Registration Fee: $5
