Meet the Annual Conference Musicians: Sandra Kirton


We want to introduce the musicians that will be assisting with the 2015 North Georgia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Meet our organist Sandra Kirton. She will also be filling in as a keyboardist and vocalist.

She has served as accompanist for several local, district, conference, and jurisdictional events and recently served as Organist and as one of six House Musicians at the 2012 United Methodist Church General Conference in Tampa, Florida.
