                                                                                     ABOUT THE MUSIC

     The prelude and offertory this Sunday are played by the St. Nicholas Chimers.  The prelude is the traditional song “Alleluia”.  The offertory is another traditional song “I’ve Got Peace Like A River”.  The postlude for this Sunday is in honor of African-American History Month.  It is “Lift Every Voice and Sing” by American composers James Weldon Johnson (1871-1938) and J. Rosamond Johnson (1873-1954).  The words are printed below for you to ponder.

     We will have a drum circle this morning with Eric Reburn.  Please join us for some fun.

Terry Foster, Church Musician


Lift every voice and sing ’til earth and heaven ring, 

  ring with the harmonies of liberty.

Let our rejoicing rise high as the list’ning skies.  

  Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.


Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us.

  Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us.

Facing the rising sun of our new day begun

  let us march on ’til the victory is won.


We wish to offer a big THANK YOU to “Doc” Davis for working on and updating our sound system.  Doc and Mike Ott have been working on it all week and it sounds great!!   Wait til you “Hear” it on Sunday!!

John Sutton would like to hand over “the keyboard” as editor of the newsletter.  If you are interested in this once-a-month project, please speak to either John or Kelly Martino. 

There will be a Worship Committee meeting after church today.
