Evening Hymn Sing – August 29
Hymn Sing with Sandra McCracken and Tim Nicholson
Make plans to conclude August on a high note by joining in a unique evening led by singer-songwriter and hymn writer Sandra McCracken and her husband Tim Nicholson, Director of Music at Covenant Presbyterian Church, Nashville. We’ll sing time-tested classics as well as new hymns written by Sandra and accompanied by strings, piano, guitar, and organ.
The Hymn Sing takes the place of our 6:00 p.m. Evening Service and will be followed by fellowship and sweet treats from a dessert food truck. All ages are welcome. No reservations required.
To prepare your heart and voice, sing along with this list of favorites by Sandra on Spotify.
