On Sunday, August 19, PVUMC welcomes “Nostalgia,” a local Barbershop Quartet who will sing gospel favorites like This Little Light of Mine and Do Lord at the 9:30 am worship service. Nostalgia has been performing at local valley churches every summer since they formed in 1975. This is the group’s third year performing at PVUMC.
The group has six members, not four: Robert Holcomb, Mike Money, Scott Holcomb, Sam Thumma, Don Richardson, and Dick Gray.

Music during the summer includes soloists and special music. On the first Sunday of the month, anyone who would like to join the Chancel Choir is invited to sing with the group. Rehearsal is a half hour to an hour before the 9:30 am service.
If you are interested in singing with the choir this summer, or in joining the choir in the fall, please contact our Music and Arts Director, Ashley Snavley Stawser. Rehearsals begin Wednesday, September 5.
