Reception for Nancy Nickel
Saturday, June 2nd, from 4-6:00pm, in the Pioneer Chapel
Mark your calendars for this special event when we say “Goodbye” to our very special Minister of Music. On the eve of Nancy’s last Bach Cantata we will gather to wish her well, and send her off with love and thanksgiving for the music ministry she has guided St. James through for the past 13 years. This should be a celebration you won’t want to miss.
