The children collected loose change from throughout the congregation for the February Loose Change project which will go toward Tri-County. Prayer time ended with a prayer from the Deacon of the Week, Johnny Szynklewski. Hymn was “Love Divine, All Loves Excelling”. The choir special was “If That Isn’t Love”.
