The South Pond Chapel Summer Hymn Sing schedule for 2014 was recently announced; the first hymn sing will take place on Sunday, July 6.
Summer hymn sings at the South Pond Chapel are sponsored by the First Baptist Church of Plymouth. The Chapel is located at 211 Long Pond Road, off exit 5 in Plymouth. Each Sunday in July and August a different area minister leads the 7:00pm service.
