A JOYOUS PREMIERE! Sunday’s service on 5/13 included a very special event, the premiere of “Charity: Heavenly Love”! Sung by our chancel choir, this challenging choral work was commissioned to celebrate our Minister of Music Jane Wilmot’s eightieth birthday and her many years of service to our fold.
“Charity: Heavenly Love” was composed by local musician Richard Francis, and is based on verses from Corinthians, Chapter 13 (KJV). These powerful lines have long been among Jane’s favorites.

The Music Committee extends deep appreciation to all the members and friends of the Congregation whose contributions made this celebration possible. ~~ Arne Aho

Pastor Char’s love of birds and all creation, her curiosity about scripture and history and her silly sense of humor combined to make this a fun and enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours in Porter Hall at Skidompha Library. Ask her about Canuck the crow …
