"Oh For A Thousand Tongues To Sing."  Ok, so maybe not that many people were here, but those that were here on Sunday, April 18, 2004 enjoyed singing many old hymns. Leading us in singing were Gary and Jean Blosberg.

 

Tom Brennan, a retired Methodist minister, has researched the life and times of a Circuit Riding Preacher and came dressed in period clothing.  He told us that the 3 most important things necessary to becoming a Circuit Rider were, experience with God, being able to preach, and having a horse.  Circuit Riders were very important in Methodism spreading out west.  People would say "I moved away from Pennsylvania to get away from you people!"

 

The North Hennepin Community College Choir, directed by our own Karla Stroman was on hand with two beautiful hymns, "He Never Failed Me Yet", and "Stay With Us".
