Welcome to the 2021-2022 concert season at Glenview Community Church. With its variety of musical styles and sonorities, Simple Gifts hopes to touch and nourish the souls of all who enter here, creating a celebration through music shared by congregational, community and international artists. Our concerts support local charitable organizations and promote peace in our world. Join us as we make a difference through music!
