‘Sundays at 3′, our 2014-15 series of organ concerts will begin on Sunday, November 16th with Susan Ohannesian playing organ pieces written for her by various composers.
May the Love of the Lord / Wei yuan Shen di ai MV218
On Sunday, Sept 21st we learned a new response song for the end of the service. We will continue singing the song over the next few weeks. We will sing it twice, once in English and once in Mandarin.
To help us learn our new response song in Mandarin here is Anna Chen’s pronunciation and recitation audio files.

May the love of our God rest upon your soul.

May God’s countenance shine upon you and be gracious to you.
May God’s Spirit be upon you as you leave this place.
Highlights of Fall 2014 Events at Ryerson

Or, Why do you go to church? 8 – 10 people per group meet at different times and in various homes to accommodate as many schedules as possible.
November: Movie Night at the Park Theatre
