Music That Makes Community is excited to make our first visit to Vancouver, BC, sharing paperless music and leadership practices! Join presenters Debbie Lou Ludoph, Donald Schell, and Scott Weidler for a one-day paperless music workshop at St. John's Anglican Church, Shaughnessy on Saturday, February 24 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Explore the basics of paperless music, learn new songs to enrich and strengthen your community, and reflect on strategies for cultivating participatory singing and liturgy.
MMC will also host a free Community SING at the church on Friday, February 23 at 7 p.m. Singers of all ages and abilities are invited to learn paperless songs from diverse spiritual traditions, languages, and cultures, led by a dynamic team of Music That Makes Community presenters and Lonnie Delisle, Musician-in-Residence at Vancouver School of Theology and Director of Music at Canadian Memorial United Church.

Music that Makes Community returns to the beautiful Bishop's Ranch in Sonoma County, CA for our fifth workshop over Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend, January 14-17. The Ranch is an ideal setting to spend three restful days singing, learning, and recharging for the year to come while enjoying the temperate climate of Northern California.
A dynamic team of MMC presenters including Kerri Meyer, Donald Schell, and Paul Vasile will lead worship, plenaries, and conversation to help you add the valuable tool of paperless song leading to your community’s singing practice. Learn practical skills and diverse repertoire, and explore how paperless music can enrich and expand your congregation's repertoire of sung prayer and praise. Take a walk in the surrounding vineyards and enjoy breathtaking views of the Russian River threading through the valley. There's no better place to take some time to reconnect with the joy of singing in community, and we hope you will join us!
Attendees can register to stay at the Ranch and enjoy delicious food prepared by the Ranch's chefs, or participate as a commuter. Take advantage of discounted early registration rates by reserving your spot before December 8!
