Saturday, 21 September

Minutes - Elkmont Chapel of Valley View Baptist Church, Wears Valley TN, Saturday, September 21st, 2019. Originally erected in what became Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Elkmont Chapel was dismantled, loaded onto a truck, moved to its present site, and re-erected, in 1938. In 2017 the date of the singing was changed to the fourth Saturday in September, the day before the Headrick Chapel singing. This year we had 27 singers in the morning, 30 in the afternoon. From farthest away was Matthias Lawetzky, from Germany, preparing a program for German media.

Introduction and opening prayer by Preston Joslin, who has been the pastor of Valley View Baptist Church for many years.

Minutes, annual New Harp of Columbia Headrick Chapel Singing, Sunday, September 22nd, 2019. Moderators were David Sarten in the morning, and Andrew Whaley in the afternoon. We had 26 singers in the morning, 27 in the afternoon. We sang 62 songs. We sang a number of tunes we hadn't sung before. Joe Schrock led Easter Anthem without the repeats, making this “Easter Anthem Lite” a lot easier to sing.
