NEXT SUNDAY morning we are going to begin worship with a time of praise. We are looking for 3-4 favorite hymns/songs from members of the congregation and also the reason they are meaningful to you. We are asking for these to be submitted by Thursday the 25th, so we can publish in the bulletin the numbers as well as the reason that they are favorites. If you have a favorite, please send the song/hymn and reason to Elaine or Pastor Bryan.
