SPANISH LESSONS & CHAT AT SPC. Come join us on Wednesdays, 12:30 to 2:00 pm, starting January 9, 2019 for Spanish lessons. We are trying to develop a format where we will meet native Spanish speakers who are trying to learn English with folks who want to learn Spanish. Half of the session will be in Spanish and half in English. In the meantime, if you want to start right away, you can sign on to Duolingo which offers free Spanish lessons on line. Classes are open to everyone and are free but we will have a basket for those who wish to give donations to the teacher. No need to sign up. Hope you can join us! Chris Madeo

COMMUNITY HYMN SING at SPC will be back January 27 (the last Sunday of the month) upstairs in the choir room. Join us for a solid hour of singing hymns with good tunes and inspiring lyrics: gospel, old-time and new. Contact Terry Tucker via office@shepherdstownpresbyterian.org.
