Greetings Canaan EM sisters and brothers!
Are you interested in helping with worship service next year? I’d like to invite you to join our Worship Team micro-Retreat this Saturday (9 AM – 2 PM). We’ll have a chance to fellowship and plan for 2011 English service worship. You don’t have to play an instrument or sing to be on the worship team. Have a look at the draft retreat schedule below – and please let Hubert Hsieh [email Hubert] know by Thursday if you will come (the earlier the better – so we can arrange lunch). Any questions, feel free to email or call my cell phone at 510.909.6849!
Hope to see many of you on Saturday! We’ll have a great time!
