4th Sunday after Epiphany Announcements

Today is the fifth Sunday of this month, and that means it’s “Stump the Choir” Sunday!  On this Sunday, the members of the congregation select ALL the hymns for our worship service – even the offertory anthem.  When the time for a hymn arrives, the pastor will ask for suggestions, and the congregation may call out a specific hymn BY NUMBER for the choir to sing.  

If the choir is not “stumped” – we sing it!  

But remember…the accompanist gets to choose the final hymn!
