  • Come Together



    Jeff Everman started writing song lyrics about five years ago but doesn’t sing or play an instrument. He’s been thinking about getting something together where Christian lyricists, musicians and vocalists could get together and help each other.

    He started looking around for such a group but couldn’t find one that met in the area. Earlier this year he decided to give the idea a whirl. In February the idea became a monthly gathering called Come Together.
