News and Events
28 Aug: Alleluia #1

Paul Loether has again given us a lovely, peaceful folk hymn tune melody on his guitar for our music offering this week. Known as Alleluia #1 or Church Street, it was written in 1971 by Donald Fishel.

21 Aug: Lift Thine Eyes

Our musical offering this week, Lift Thine Eyes, comes from Elijah, the oratorio by Felix Mendelssohn. Elijah, is the story of the Old Testament prophet and premiered in 1848. This anthem, sung by an angelic trio, appears after Elijah escapes to the wilderness in despair and prays for the end of his life.

14 Aug: The Lord Bless You and Keep You

This very familiar text, known as the Aaronic Blessing, is taken from Number 6:24-26. It was given to Moses to tell Aaron and his sons that they are to give the blessing to the people in this way.
