How Great Thou Art Sunday
Sunday, July 7, 9:00am, 10:30am, and 11:59am Worship Services
This great song was originally in Swedish, then moved into the German and Russian languages and somehow kept its power and greatness as it was translated into English. We will let our souls sing in awesome wonder at this special worship service. Dr. Keck will preach a sermon on this splendid hymn and musicians Erin-Ann Scott and Ariel Merivil will deliver a deeply affecting rendition of "How Great Thou Art." Join us for the wonder and power of this hour!
