Scripture and Song .Â Two services earlier this spring, in which people sharedÂ Scripture passages and Hymns which had special meaning for them, had good participation, even more than could be accommodated in a one-hour service. People have commented on wanting more such services, so the Worship Committee is giving another opportunity for a “Story and Song” service.
Give some thought and prayer during this week to what scripture or hymn you could share next Sunday, with a few comments on how it has contributed to your spiritual life.
