Sunday service at Tyrone Presbyterian
Like everyone else, the 83 members of Tyrone Presbyterian Church may be aging, but at 10:30 a.m. worship this Sunday, January 14, they surely will swing as they sing spirituals to celebrate the 24th anniversary of Martin Luther King weekend.
Leading this Sunday of swinging spirituals will be Reverend Norman Huff. Just last week, Huff became Interim Presbyterian Pastor for the next five months, from January to June 2007. Mr. Huff will favor people with a solo spiritual. Also, he will lead folks in singing the rousing hymn “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.”
The Westminster Choir will transport listeners back to the long-ago days of their Bible school and church camp years with their lighthearted rendition of the spiritual called “This Little Light of Mine, I’m Going to Let it Shine”. Church organist Richard Merryman will offer a blues/jazz piano rendition of the comforting spiritual entitled “Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen”.
