UPDATE 5/20/2015

Last Sunday we dedicated our new hymnal, Hymns of Truth and Light with a beautiful service highlighting the different kinds of hymns that can be found in the new book. Many thank to all those who helped make the service possible by checking over the new hymnals, placing bookplates, helping with hymnal orders at coffee hour, switching over the hymnal in the pews, and much more! And of course, our thanks to our dedicated and hardworking hymnal committee who worked over two years to bring us to this point: Ann Behravesh, David Kilroy, Barbara Welter, Russell Mann, Marilyn Becker, and Mark Morgan.

Did you know–our new hymnal has a history of Hancock Church? You’ll find it at the very beginning of the hymnal. Many thanks to Sue Rockwell for preparing this for us.

If you ordered a hymnal for your personal use–please pick it up from the narthex.

If you would like a copy of the Pilgrim or Rejoice Hymnals–they will be available for free in the dining room on May 31st and June 7th. Those that have dedicatory bookplates will be separated and in alphabetical order so that you may find any that are attached to your family.

If you would like to dedicate one of our new hymnals–we will continue to take orders through June 14th. You’ll find the form online, in the office, and outside of Mark Morgan’s office in the lower corridor. Help us reach our goal of 30 more hymnals dedications!


UPDATE 4/29/2015: You can check your hymnal dedication right here! Check the pdf and email our Administrative Assistant Sarah Burns with any corrections! Hymnal Dedication IN HONOR OF (PDF) or Hymnal Dedication IN MEMORY OF (PDF)

UPDATE 4/28/2015: If you dedicated a hymnal, the plates are now available for proofing during coffee hour and in the church office. Stop by and take a look!

UPDATE 4/14/2015: Our hymnals have arrived and they look terrific! We so look forward to sharing them with you during worship on our Hymnal Dedication Sunday on May 17th. You can dedicate a hymnal in memory of someone special to you, or in honor of someone living. The deadline for having your dedication included in the hymnals for Dedication Sunday is Tuesday, April 21st. You can find a form below. Dedications are $35 per hymnal. Hymnals for personal use may be purchased for $45. Your dedication will provide us with a beautiful new hymnal that the church will use in worship for generations. The new hymnal and the dedicatory bookplate may be viewed in the church office, or on the table outside Mark Morgan’s office in the lower corridor.

Our new hymnal is at the printer and will be in our pews later this spring! You have the opportunity to dedicate a hymnal (s) in honor of a loved one (parent, spouse, child, grandchild, etc.) or in memory of someone. This dedicatory bookplate will be placed in the inside cover of the hymnal as a  reminder of your gift for all those who will use that hymnal in worship each week. In addition, your gift will help with the purchase of all of the hymnals for the sanctuary.  For an additional fee, you can also purchase a personal copy of the hymnal for your use at home.
