Join us for An Evening of Hymns. The hymn texts take on new meanings and greater dimensions as Jim and Jonathan soar over new harmonies and daring contrasts. Nothing can speak to the heart better than an old hymn performed by musicians who live for the reason behind the message.
Testament of Praise—A Celebration of Faith

The works of Charles Wesley
This event celebrates the word and message of Charles Wesley (1707-1788). The work of this devout writer has become part of our common Christian vocabulary, transcending the differences of denomination and dogma. We are community when we celebrate worship with the words of Wesley, for they are words filled with deep emotion and thoughtful theology. They represent some of the most insightful expressions in all of Christian hymnody.
