Vespers & All That Jazz

WIGHTMAN CHAPEL @ SCARRITT-BENNETT

Every Sunday - 6:30 pm

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Encounter the sacred in a new and unique way through this music-shaped, experiential worship service. Inspired by jazz as a process of making music and using the music to help us experience the interruptive spirit of God, Vespers & All That Jazz encourages compassion, peace, justice and wonder. Come with open minds, hearts and ears and experience the spirit of God in a new way!

Vespers & All That Jazz is a non-membership community worship service for all ages. The services are informal and last approximately 45 minutes.
