RECEPTION FOR GEORGE STEAWARD

Since George Steward walked through our doors in June, 2016 as Interim Director of Music, our congregation has benefitted from music and performances that have showcased his many talents – directing, composing and performing among them. We are so thankful for his leadership of our music ministry and pray for his continued success as he leaves West Side to have more time to perform and teach. Please join us after worship service today to honor George for his ministry here and send him off with our love and blessings!
