Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts
of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him
with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise
him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise
the LORD. Praise the LORD.

Local Arrangement Circuit Training
When ‘LA’ appears on the plan, how do you respond?
SMC wants to help you respond well to the
opportunities and challenges that Las bring. A
training session is being held specifically aimed at
Worship Leaders and Church Stewards, but open to
anyone who would like to come. The session will be
held at Oakhill Methodist Church from 10.00am to
12 noon on Saturday 7th February and will be
repeated at Churchill Methodist Church from
10.00am to 12 noon on Tuesday 10th February. It
would be good if all Worship Leaders and Church
Stewards from our church could be present and at
the very least one person attend one of these sessions
