New Spanish Hymnal Produced
September 10, 2010
We’re very pleased to announce that a brand new hymnal has been completed for our Spanish-speaking United Church of God brethren.
The new hymnal is a direct copy of the recently completed hardbound English hymnal. Up until now, our Spanish brethren have been using the slim purple hymnal from the late 1990s. The new hymnal has all 191 songs, compared to the only 74 hymns available to them in the past.
Shipments of the new book will be sent to UCG Feast of Tabernacles sites in Latin America for distribution to the brethren. They can then take them back to their local congregations after the Feast. Copies will also be distributed to our Spanish-speaking members in various cities in the United States.
The five Latin American Feast sites are in the following locations. More than 400 brethren are expected to be in attendance:
- Coroico, Yungas, La Paz, Bolivia
- Tongoy, Chile
- Anebre, Melgar, Tolima, Colombia
- Panajachel, Sololá, Guatemala
- Veracruz, Mexico
You can read full Festival site descriptions in the September 2010 issue of El Comunicado, our Spanish member newsletter.
We trust and pray that this new hymnal will be a helpful and encouraging addition to our member’s festival experience.
