Summer 2018

You may be wondering, what is a mixtape? A mixtape is a compilation of favorite pieces of music by different artists recorded onto a cassette tape or CD. A carefully crafted mixtape could let someone know you loved them or set the soundtrack for summer.  The crowning achievement of a mixtape was its ability to weave popular songs with music you had never heard before. This summer, we are going to create our own mixtape, as we weave six of the Bible’s greatest hits with six stories you may have never heard before. We will find our own stories, and we will encounter once again, the great story of God.  A God who continues to love us, redeem us, challenge us, call us, and forgive us.

summer choir

Summer Choir at Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church is a wonderful opportunity to experience active participation in a fun, welcoming, and musically outstanding ensemble with very limited commitment. The Summer Choir meets every Sunday morning, May 27 through September 2, at 9:20AM in Emmanuel Hall (the choir rehearsal space) to prepare that morning’s anthem and then offer it during the 10AM worship service. Sing only once this summer, every now and then, or every week… it’s a great way to experience singing in a choir of PHPC!
