2011 Homecoming

Simpson County Courthouse, Mendenhall, MS - Built in 1907

We certainly had a beautiful day to hold Hosanna's 2011 Homecoming at the Simpson County Courthouse. We were blessed to have wonderful talent there, and our thanks go out to them and the many who came who worship with us. The only down-side of the day was the occasion of Gerald's retirement. He told us several months ago, and we chose to not believe it, but he finally convinced us that it was for real and then we went on a search for a tenor to join us. We are pleased to announce that we have been blessed by David Lewis joining Hosanna, and look for some big things from him. We'll put up his bio at a later date.
