“When in our music God is glorified,
And adoration leaves no room for pride,
It is as though the whole creation cried
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!”
Every Sunday our worship is enriched by congregational singing. We might from The Hymnal 1982; Wonder, Love, and Praise; Lift Every Voice and Sing II; or other sources. We might sing hymns written hundreds of years ago or just a few years ago, in Spanish or Swahili, accompanied by percussion or by organ.
We sing to gather together, to glorify God in the ancient words of the Psalms, to celebrate Jesus’ presence among us, to express wonder and praise at the Eucharist, and to send each other out into the world.
If you worry that you don’t know all they hymns, or that you can’t sing as well as you would like, do not be afraid to sing out anyway! We sing together to glorify God, not to put on a concert performance. “Praise the Lord! How good it is to sing praises to our God, for God is gracious, and a song of praise is fitting.”~Psalm 147:1
Most Sundays our congregational singing is supported by the choir. New choir members are always welcome. If you have enjoyed singing in a choir before or have a background in piano or instrumental music, please join us! To learn more, please email Mother Debra or call the office at 330-535-9174.
