To Music committees in Central Plains congregations:
Throughout the years, Hutterthal Mennonite Church of Freeman, South Dakota, has presented many children’s Christmas musicals and adult Easter Cantatas. These have been a real blessing to our congregation. Recently we have been going through the music inventory and decided it is time to share this music with others who might be interested. The music would be yours free of charge.
Please note the contact information at the bottom of the music listing.
