“Make music to the Lord with the harp,
with the harp and the sound of singing.”
Scripture encourages us to sing!
The Origins of Hymns: why were they written?
Why Don’t We Sing the Psalm?
On Wednesday, March 29, plan now to attend the meal and special presentation about music in worship.
A Sunday in April, you will find in the bulletin a sheet asking you to list your favorite hymn. Print the name or title of your favorite hymn and include the hymn number in our blue “The United Methodist Hymnal”. You may include up to three titles. I will reduce the number of titles submitted to the six congregation favorites and include several of them in our service on Sunday, April 30.
Also on the page provided, you will see that I have included space for the title of one hymn, psalm or spiritual song not included in our hymnal. If more than two people indicate it as their choice, and it is appropriate to be included in our worship, I will attempt to locate the text and music and include it in a future service.
