Help! We need 30+ Extra Singers for the Easter Sunrise Service at Balboa Park

We need 30+ extra singers to sing with our choir for the Easter Sunrise Service at the Spreckels Organ Pavilion, Balboa Park on Sunday, April 5th.  This is a special year at the park as they celebrate the 100th year anniversary, and Faith Presbyterian Church is hosting the service this year.

The Good News:  Many people who come to this service have never heard the gospel and this is a wonderful chance for us to help in sharing the love of God through Jesus Christ, our Lord to them and the community.

If you are interested in this “missional” adventure, please see Joe Rodriguez after worship on Sunday or call the church office at (619) 582-8480.
