Pastoral Prayer

The Fellowship of the Word

*Hymn                    "Peace in the Valley" by Thomas A. Dorsey
There will be peace in the valley for me, some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray
There’ll be no sadness, no sorrow
no trouble, trouble I see
There will be peace in the valley for me
