A workshop led by District Ministry Excellence Team Worship Leader and Music Director at Wellspring UMC in Willamsburg, Gail Scullion.
In this workshop participants will listen to and discuss their response to "traditional" worship and "contemporary" worship. They will consider differences and look for common ground. This workshop is an excellent way to praise our Lord while considering how to effectively reach those preferring different worship styles.
The York River District Youth Choir (YRDYC) is a choir of the United Methodist Church. The choir is made up of youth, ages 14 through college age, from local churches within the York River District. The purpose of YRDYC is for York River District Youth to fulfill their responsibilities as lay members of the church in a way that will help themselves, and the churches for whom they sing to, grow in their understanding of what it means to be disciples of Jesus Christ in a global church. This year's trip will be from June 19th to July 3rd. We will be traveling to New Jersey and working with A Future With Hope to assist in ongoing recovery from Superstorm Sandy. Below is the link to the application with more information, including the cost of the trip. If your church is interested in hosting YRDYC, there is also contact information on the application to go about scheduling a concert.
