glory to godThe Worship & Religious Arts Committee has recommended, and Session has approved, our acquisition of a new hymnal to replace the 1990 edition we are currently using. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) adopted this new hymnal: “Glory to God; The Presbyterian Hymnal” in 2013, after eight years of study; and it is now widely used in PCUSA churches across the country. Kerry and Peter approve of the new hymnal. Kerry has commented that a large number of familiar hymns from the 1990 edition have been retained, but that the new hymnal also includes some of the more contemporary songs we have used in worship this past year. The print size is larger, and, for planning purposes, it has a more helpful and comprehensive index of hymns. It also contains worship aids and printed liturgies for Sunday services and services for daily prayer. Peter is pleased with the accompaniment addition, which consists of two volumes. We will begin using “Glory to God” at our worship service on Sunday, September 9, 2019; and we would like to have at least 200 copies in our pews by that date. You can help by purchasing one or more copies of the hymnal, at $20/copy, in honor or memory of another person(s). Visit with W&RA Committee members and peruse a copy of the hymnal at the table that will be set up during the social time following the worship services on May 26, June 2 and June 16 (and on subsequent Sundays as needed)
