The Prot. Ref. Men’s Chorus, under the direction of Roland Petersen, rendered one of their usual satisfying programs in Hudsonville church after the evening service, May 6. If any of you had to miss this splendid offering you may be able to enjoy a repetition thereof a few weeks later in First Church. The beautiful sound of male voices singing in four-part harmony is satisfying experience worth your while to change your plans to be able to enjoy it, or, better still, take your “company” with you to share it together. You will agree that it, too, belongs to the Sabbath Day as a part of the picture of the rest that awaits the saints.
. . . . see you in church.
