"Hymns & Songs for Praise"
For thousands of years, hymns and songs have played a very important role in religious traditions and worship. There are many hymns we know by heart (i.e. Amazing Grace and How Great Thou Art), and still others we don't know at all. But why do we sing and play them? Are they really that important? Come and learn all about worship music of all kinds. As a whole class, we'll even learn how to write a hymn for an upcoming worship service.
Date: Sunday TBD (Summer 2017)
