The Lord provided a perfectly beautiful day for the 10th Annual Fall Hymn Sing at Spann UMC in Ward, SC. The first of these services was held during the year of Spann’s 200th Anniversary Celebration. The purpose was to showcase the grand old hymns from the Cokesbury Hymnal, in use at Spann since 1938. This year was no exception with congregational singing that included such favorites as “The Church in the Wildwood, O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing,” and “Sweet By and By.”
The guest soloist was Elizabeth Hart from Seneca, SC. Her selections were “Since Jesus Came into My Heart” and “His Eye Is on the Sparrow.” Mr. Wallace Watkins played the piano and Pastor John Kneece led the congregational singing. A time for fellowship followed the program with refreshments on the grounds.
