Alden Solovy writes in his poem, “Sing Praises”: “Listen to your own voice. Listen to your own prayers. This is your power and your peace. This is your pulse and your heartbeat. This is your life. Sing praises, sing praises.”
We invite the whole congregation to join us for this wonderful morning in song and prayer, as we join your voice with our voice and sing praises. A free luncheon for everyone will follow the service, please register on our website in order to make sure that we have enough food.
