The recording will include the texts for hymns, etc., and the Service Outline is posted below.
Thanks to Colin, Robin, Ron, Jssmin and Jim for the music.
If you are interested in adding your voice as a scripture reader, please let me know by email ([email protected]). All you need is a memo or voice recorder app on your cell phone.
For the summer months, we invite hymn requests for our recording sessions. So let me know what you want to hear!
I am taking the next two Sundays as vacation days, so the Worship Committee and friends will be providing the worship materials.
