Dear Family and Friends of Our Savior’s,
He who sings, prays twice. This quote attributed to St. Augustine of Hippo emphasizes the importance of singing in the lives of Christians. Encouraged by our Elders and others in our congregation, the “Reopening Committee” has revised the worship guidelines to allow for singing with masks on during our church services. As the psalmist declared: Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before Him with thanksgiving and extol Him with music and song. (Psalm 95:1-2).
