July 5, 2020 - Summer Series #1: A Parish or a Picnic Table” - Wendy Engelhardt, Worship Leader
So many places, so many practices, each feeding our spirits day by day. My place and my practice began with an old aluminum picnic table and a cherished friend. Let me tell you about it. Mike Hoffman is the Worship Associate, and Lee and John Morris share the gift of music.
