Message from Steve Schenkel, Music Director of First Unity Church
This coming Sunday, January 30, 2022, will be our first “Special Music Sunday.” In months that have a fifth Sunday, we will have larger ensembles to perform for us. Unfortunately, this week’s event will be a live stream only, but these remarkable players will play brilliantly for our virtual congregation.
“Special Music Sunday” — January 30, 2022
