In January, the Territorial Songsters went to sunny Florida to conduct a ministry weekend at the Suncoast ARC and the Clearwater Corps.
We ministered to the men of the Suncoast ARC under the leadership of Majors Donald & Donna Smith. We shared a meal with them before the concert and after we had a time of fellowship.
Saturday evening Festival of Praise was at the Clearwater Corps (Captains Michael & Christine Harris, Corps Officers.) The local music forces were well represented. The Clearwater Band and the Songsters under the leadership of B/M Paul Bridges and S/L Debi Forde respectively added to the festival. The Territorial Songsters joined the Clearwater Songsters led by Dr. Beatrice Holz and sang Praise to The Lord, the Almighty arr. Charles Skinner.
Sunday morning worship was beautiful as the Territorial Songsters ushered us to the very throne of God as they sang Dan Forrest arrangement of And Can It Be.
