The Longest Verse

Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing.

I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
