Community is Ste-Genny's Singing Ministry group.
We are a group of people, young and old, who love music and love singing.
We employ a wide variety of
instruments, guitars, drums,
flute, musical keyboard and
various hand held instruments.
We perform songs with the
congregation each Baptism Sunday. We also
take part in
special services such as the Christmas pageant and the Christmas Eve
From time to time we
organize a Coffeehouse,
with proceeds divided
equally among a chosen local
charitable organization, a church-related project, and Community
itself. Groups that have
Palliative Care Residence,
Brewery Mission, West Island
Women's Shelter, Big
Brothers Big Sisters of West-Island, The
Shriner's Hospital for Children and On-Rock Ministries.
Our music ministry also
takes us into the
wider community for outreach. In the past we have played at the
Ecumenical Picnic, Norma Mc-Alister Senior Home, Side
United Church, Lakeside
Heights Baptist Church and a Presbytery Youth Retreat. On
