Celebration Magazine...a comprehensive worship resource

The holy holes...

Can you miss something that was never even there? You may have noticed that beginning with the July 2017 edition, your copies of Celebration are no longer three-hole punched. We are sorry for any inconvenience that may cause you. It was a necessary editorial decision and we thank you for your patience. As always, we welcome reader feedback and questions about your subscription at support@celebrationpublications.org.
