A Note From Tim

Bonjour mes amis!

With the arrival of spring, I can almost hear the bustling streets of Paris!  Excitement continues to build as we prepare to present “Requiem for the Living” on Palm Sunday evening.  That will be a wonderful time of music and worship, and we’ll be well ahead of the curve in preparing the music for the Paris Choral Festival.  

This webpage contains lots of helpful links and information, so linger a while and check it out.  If you have questions, let us know!



Your remaining balance is due on May 15. Please mail a check to Providence Baptist Church or make an online payment.

For an updated invoice or payment questions, contact Caitie.
