Pictures Speak Louder Than Words

There’s a phrase: “Pictures speak louder than words.” Pictures can add vitality to Crescent Hill Presbyterian Church’s website and Facebook page. But we need your help. If you are able to take pictures of our life together, please submit them to the church office (office@crescenthill.church). Not sure how to send pictures from your phone or ipad? Faith Grady in the church office may be able to help you do this.

We understand that some may prefer not to have pictures of themselves posted. If you would prefer that you or other family members NOT be included in pictures and/or NOT be named on our website and social media posts, please complete the Opt Out Form.

Coming Soon! Music for a Summer Afternoon 2022 Recital Series

Gibson will be joined by flutist Doug Yeager on several of the pieces. Composers represented on the recital include Michael Nyman, Richard Rodney Bennett,

Ludovico Einaudi, among others.

Our closing program of the series on August 7 th will feature a musical stroll through the church year in a recital of our favorite hymns played by duo pianists Frank Kirk, Jr. and David Paul Gibson. You will not want to miss hearing these beloved hymns played by piano four hands. The program begins at 2:00pm.

All three of these programs are free and open to all. Plan now to attend and bring friends. Come for the music and stay for refreshments and fellowship.

We look forward to sharing these programs with you.
