The evening will end promptly at 8:30 p.m. Please bring the family as we worship in song with gifted worship leaders -- Greg and Linda Hytha (Linda Lownes Hytha is a DC grad) -- share our blessings with an open mic, interspersed with times of prayer.

Greg and Linda Hytha (DC grad ‘77) have been on an enthusiastic and ever-changing musical adventure for several decades, whether it be touring , producing origina lCD’s, or playing various venues in the Philadelphia region. Greg and Linda currently lead worship at Grace Valley Fellowship Valley Forge, and Greg leads music for the mid-week service at Calvary Church of Souderton.
