Mary Oyer Hymn Sing Recordings

“Wade in the Water: Singing our Faith” — a community hymn sing organized and led by Mary K. Oyer and Kent Dutchersmith with musicians from Faith Mennonite Church, Goshen, Indiana — is now available as a YouTube playlist in honor of Mary, a longtime music professor who died Jan. 11, 2024. The hymn sing was held June 15, 2007, at Goshen College’s Sauder Hall as part of Indiana-Michigan Mennonite Conference’s Annual Sessions, and the recordings are shared by Faith Mennonite Church with the permission and blessing of the conference. The recordings illuminate Mary’s warm, open and gracious way of leading people in creating music together and of introducing new music from across the world.
