2018 Mid-state Choir Festival

Preparations are underway for the 2018 Mid-state Choir Festival.  This will be our 5th event.  This coming festival will be held at the Cedar Hill Baptist Church in Dillsburg and will be under the direction of Dr. Russ Shelley.

We invite all churches in our fellowship to participate.  YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE A CHOIR.  In fact, this particular event is well suited for the smaller church that does not have a choir but may have some individuals that would love to be a part of this joint choir event.

Postcards have been sent and more are on the way with details.  The website is completely updated with pertinent information and we now have a Facebook page as well to keep everyone current.

For more information, please contact either Pastor Wes Gunther of the Cedar Hill Baptist Church (717-432-9590,  cedarhillbap@gmail.com) or Pastor Perry Kile of the Bible Baptist Church of New Bloomfield (717-582-8365, bbcnbpk@centurylink.net)

2017-18 Schedule

I have posted the schedule for 2017-18 on the website.  It is a continuously updated menu down the right side of the home page.  It will show months that are scheduled and those that are open for the coming season.

I am working with KCEA (Keystone Christian Education Association) to schedule a seminar here at Cedar Hill this summer on Security/Safety/Active Shooter.  Look for more details coming soon!

Please let me know if you would be willing to host a meeting.  Mondays or Tuesdays.  You do not have to provide a lunch.  You do not have to be having special meetings or guest speakers.  You can speak yourself or open it up to someone else in the fellowship. Let me know.

No May fellowship

We will not be having a May fellowship.  We will reconvene in September.

I already have some meetings scheduled for the fall of 2017.  If you are having special meetings or are willing to host in either the fall of 2017 or spring of 2018, please let me know.

I am working on some very special things for next year.  I am looking to have more concentrated/topical events.

You will also be receiving a postcard soon with details of the Spring 2018 Choir Festival.
