Fanny Crosby Vespers are held annually in the Old Southeast Church. Fanny Crosby's life and music are celebrated every year in the church which she attended as a child. It is usually celebrated in September or October on a Sunday afternoon. The service consists of playing and singing of a few of her many hymns and a portrayal, and/or a talk about this remarkable woman. Refreshments are served afterward. There is no charge, but there is a free-will offering during the service.
