Rita's Reflections

By Rev. Dr. Rita Sims, First United Methodist Church, Kosse

St. Augustine once wrote the sentiment that the one who sings prays twice. There is something about singing that lifts our spirits.

A singing opportunity for junior high and high school students begins on Tuesday, September 12 at 4:00 pm at Groesbeck Middle School.
