Join us on Tuesday, August 15th at noon as we "make a joyful noise" together! Come and enjoy fellowship with other seniors.  Lunch will be provided for a $5.00 contribution to help defray the cost of the luncheon.  After lunch we will adjourn to the church choir loft where Pilgrim's Cantor to the Congregation, Sarah Williams, will share her incredible talent by giving us a demonstration on how she and our new organ create all its many and varied sounds that make the beautiful music we are now hearing each Sunday. 

Sarah will also lead us in a hymn sing-along with some of our favorite hymns.  In addition to hearing our beautiful organ, we will be blessed with a brief commentary on each hymn by Pastor Paul Schumacher.  Please sign up by Sunday, August 13th in the church lobby on the sheet on the credenza under the TV.  If you would like to attend but need transportation, please note this on the sign-up sheet with your telephone number and we will call and make arrangements to pick you up. Questions?
