Hymn Sing on September 7
By popular demand we will be having another hymn sing on Sunday September 7, to sing some favorites and hopefully to learn some new songs.
Our song leader will be George Thomson. Take some time during the upcoming weeks to reflect on your favorites and which hymns you would like the congregation to sing. Your choices may cme from the Methodist Hymnal we use each Sunday or from another hymnal.
Email George directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Given that this Sunday is the first Sunday of the month, the sacrament of Holy Communion will be celebrated the following Sunday, September 14.
