SINGING FROM THE SAME HYMNAL!
We have replaced our very old and well-worn Gather hymnals with a new book called Worship. To defray the expense of the new books, we are offering an opportunity to purchase a bookplate that will be affixed to the inside front cover of the hymnal. Memorialize a loved one, honor someone special or simply show your appreciation for Sacred music. Cost is $20.
