Congregation Spotlight
Hebron Happy to Hymn Again
Hebron Church in Manakin-Sabot celebrated Pentecost Sunday by inviting worshippers to wear colors of flame, and by enjoying a picnic on the grounds after worship, with hymn-singing. It was the first time members of the congregation had sung together since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. 
POJ welcomes photos of congregations to highlight here, on Facebook, and in the Vine. Send your photos and a short summary of the activity to Kelley Hope.
