Thank You, Choir!…. Today is the last Sunday for the full choir to sing at 9:00 and 11:15 services. Alan and Vivian Potts will host the annual choir picnic this afternoon at their home. We greatly value their musical contributions to our worship services and want to thank Alan and all the singers for a wonderful season! We hope that they will all return in the fall after a summer of rest and refreshment.

Note to Scripture Readers… As noted above, today is the last day for the full choir to sing. Beginning NEXT SUNDAY, we will no longer be chanting the psalm at the 9:00 and 11:15 services. Those who are scheduled to read the first reading —please remember to lead the psalm afterwards. If you have any questions on how to introduce and lead the psalm, please see Tom Ward or one of the clergy.
