Shape Note Sing, Third Sundays, 2 – 4 PM in the Advocate Chapel

Every third Sunday, The Advocate Chapel is host to NC Shape Note for a old time Shape Note Sing. As is customary, all are welcome to come and sing along!

Whether you’ve tried it along the way or never experienced this particular form of song and camaraderie, come and give it a try. Or simply stop by and listen for a while. The Advocate Chapel is a terrific setting for this kind of music.

Members of the NC Shape Note have offered to come early to teach about the tradition of the shapes and the notes.

Each breeze that pierces through the humid heat reminds us of God’s Spirit. The combination of open windows, ceiling fans and air-conditioning in the Advocate Chapel is downright inspiring!
