Music @ Arch Street
“Sing to the Lord a new song…” Psalm 149:1
Arch Street’s music ministry is a celebration of God’s grace both in the service and outside in the street.
- A Sanctuary Choir that rehearses and participates in worship every Sunday morning. The Sanctuary Choir frequently accepts invitations to sing in venues throughout the city.
The latest gay clergyperson to be “fired” by a United Methodist Bishop because of his relationship with another man, whom he has since married, the Rev. Hutchison has been without a church assignment since he was removed from his position as the pastor of Cassopolis UMC in West Michigan in July of this year. Under his leadership, the Church he served for three years quadrupled, became financially solvent, and was thriving. His congregation loves him deeply and has always known he was gay, as did the church leadership. An awesome preacher, he regrets no longer having this opportunity. Hear his story and give your support! Event will be held Saturday, October 17th, 6-8 PM. Doors open at 5:30 PM.
Tickets are $10 / $5 for students and will be available after the service near the chapel, or call Arch Street UMC at 215-568-6250.
All donations advance full acceptance of LGBT persons in the United Methodist Church.
Menu: Salad-Spaghetti Pie-Dessert-Beverage.
Parking: Windshield parking placards available at the church for parking on Broad St. between Benjamin Franklin Parkway and Arch St. and on Arch St. between 12th and Broad Streets. Limited spaces in lot on Arch St. adjacent to the Church. Car pooling and public transportation always great!
