Summer Hymn Sing

During our summer Sunday services (June through Labor Day weekend), we have an ongoing "hymn-sing," where we sing hymns selected by members of the congregation. If you have a favorite hymn or two (or more), please let us know by submitting them in the hymn box located at the rear door of the church on the ushers table (there are slips of paper there for you to write on).We can't promise that all suggested hymns make it into a service, but we will do our best to include all of your suggestions.
