Link to watch

An hour-long music celebration featuring Church of the Brethren musicians from across the church will be presented online July 2, 2020, the evening after the Denominational Worship Gather and Children’s Worship Service.

The Annual Conference Program and Arrangements Committee is securing musical offerings from a wide variety of Brethren musicians, providing a variety of musical styles and instruments.

Contributors to the concert will include Brethren singer/songwriters Joseph Helfrich, Michael Stern, Shawn Kirchner, Seth Hendricks, Terry and Andy Murray, Jacob Crouse and Bittersweet Gospel Band. In addition, selections are scheduled from the Miami First Church of the Brethren, the women’s choir from EYN Mubi, and several memorable excerpts from recent Annual Conferences.

In addition, a long time friend of the Church of the Brethren, Ken Medema, has agreed to write and record a song specifically for the event.

The concert will be hosted by Program and Arrangements Committee members Emily Shonk Edwards and Carol Elmore.

We hope you’ll join us for this cross section of inspirational music from around the church, as part of the 2 day activities in lieu of an actual in-person Annual Conference gathering.
