During Easter season we want to hear WHAT your favorite hymn is and WHY! Choose any hymn from the red 1982 Hymnal or the Music Issue and tell us why it speaks to your heart. During the season of Pentecost we'll sing these favorites during Sunday worship, and print your name and reason for loving the hymn in the bulletin.
