is being added to our pews as a uniquely American, easy-to-sing, collection of gospel and old-time-favorite hymns. We now have 60 LEVAS hymnals in the pew racks. 32 copies were dedicated in honor of Al and Louise Fridkis given by their children.  The labels inside the front cover dedicate those books in their honor.  If you would like to purchase a hymnal, we are able to order them from Amazon for $15 apiece.  To purchase, simply notify Mary Bendas, our trusted treasurer.  Let her know what you would like written on the inner label.

Please help support our young readers and the students in Darbonne if you are able.  It counts if you are an adult and read to a small child or newborn baby, so please join us again this summer in supporting this important mission.
