The Art Men’s Choir sang a special hymn titled “In His Love” that was written by our own Emily Jordan. It is a very inspirational hymn. They also sang it at the 5th Sunday Sing.
Our service was also blessed with musical specials by the children of Mark and Barbara Krause. Sara Dixon sang “You Alone” as Matt Krause played his guitar. They also provided the offertory with “It Is Well With My Soul.” They are involved in the music of the new Methodist church in Gruene.
