As was announced in November, it is time to begin the hymnal evaluation process.
From now until March 5, you are invited to preview, evaluate, and provide feedback on our three hymnal candidates: Celebrating Grace, Glory to God, and Lift Up Your Hearts.
Multiple copies of the hymnals are available for you to review in the Conference Room. An evaluation form has been prepared for you to use to familiarize yourself with the hymnals, make comparisons, and provide your feedback to the Worship Committee. It is very important to the committee that you take this process very seriously and fill out the evaluation form as completely as possible. The evaluation form is both an opportunity to provide feedback and an opportunity for learning. The form will guide you through examining many aspects of each hymnal including everything from how it feels in your hand to how it helps tell God’s story.
If you would like to begin your hymnal evaluation at home and then come to the Conference Room to complete questions 1 and 6, the hymnal evaluation form along with PDFs of the information from the hymnals are available by clicking on the links below. You can drop off your completed form in the church office.
In March, the Worship Ministry committee will gather all the feedback provided by the members of the church during the evaluation process and organize it into a format so the results can be clearly presented to the church.
Thank you so much for your participation in this exciting project.
