To help people worship more fully at home by being able to join in the singing of hymns — at worship and other times — Worship Assistant Elaine Johnson repurposed some old, well used hymnals she discovered that were sitting in storage to send, with a short note of encouragement, to our church members at The Stayton and Trinity Terrace.
“I got the idea from Epworth UMC, the church I grew up in,” Elaine relates. “They loaned hymnals to their members. I knew we had a bunch in storage that choral union used to use, so we decided to give them to our Trinity Terrace and Stayton church members. We also gave them to seven families in the 76019 zip code. We have 19 more!” If you would like to have one of the remaining used hymnals (first-come, first-served!), please email Elaine (firstname.lastname@example.org).
