JOYS and SORROWS & COFFEE HOUR
Sunday, June 14th – 11:30 am (on Zoom)
Following the regular time slot for our 10:30 Sunday morning service, we will hold a “Joys and Sorrows” online check-in, where everyone has a chance to share our worries and sorrows, as well as our joys and sources of happiness, without questions or discussion. This will be followed by a “Coffee Hour” when we can ask questions, and delve deeper into conversation, if we choose. Join us at 11:30 am by clicking the Zoom link which was emailed to you on Friday and/or Saturday by our Fellowship Office Administrator. Instructions on how to join a Zoom gathering are available here.

Introducing the Song Pat
Song “Love Grows One By One” Words & Music: Carol Johnson ©1981
performed by Elizabeth McMahon
CHORUS: Oh, Love grows one by one, two by two, and four by four.
Love grows round like a circle, and comes back knockin’ on your front door.
CHORUS: Oh, Love grows one by one….
2. So let me take your hand my friend, we’ll each take the hand of another;
Hand in hand we’ll reach round the world to our sisters and our brothers.
CHORUS Oh, Love grows one by one…. (sing twice)
