Join us for the 2018 Annual Heritage Service and Hymn Sing at the historic Ringgold Meeetinghouse (MD) on Sunday, July 15 at 2 p.m. This year, we’re combining the Historical Society’s Heritage Service and the Ringgold Meetinghouse Hymn Sing in order to coincide with the 2018 Brethren in Christ U.S. General Assembly (formerly known as General Conference). Our hope is that this will encourage more people to experience this meaningful gathering—especially for those who live in other parts of the country or the world! If you have never been to an event at the Ringgold Meetinghouse, it is an experience you do not want to miss.

The theme is, "This Is My Story, This Is My Song." This service will provide an opportunity for you to experience the historic 19th-century meetinghouse and its beautiful acoustics, filled with harmonies of time-honored hymns.

Interspersed throughout the hymn sing will be several reflections from Church leaders on the question, "What does it mean for you to be Brethren in Christ?" These speakers include Daleen Charles, associate pastor at Elizabethtown (PA) BIC Church; Jay Johnson, pastor of Zion (KS) BIC Church; and Ray Kipe, a pastor at Five Forks (PA) BIC Church.

There is no cost to attend, but a special offering will be collected. If you would like to carpool to the event, please indicate so on this form. Please register either way, so that we can make sure to have enough refreshments.

Please register by July 8 if you are planning to carpool.
