In this New Year, come and join us in celebration of God and God’s marvelous works with song and instrument. Come to choir on Thursday evenings. Come for a season, come to try out a new way to praise. Or, come Monday evenings and learn to ring bells or offer your talent with instruments for special music. Learn a new skill or dust off an old one.
“When in our music God is glorified,
and adoration leaves no room for pride,
it is as though the whole creation cried:
How often, making music, we have found a new dimension
in the world of sound,
as worship moved us to a more profound
So has the church, in liturgy and song, in faith and love,
through centuries of wrong,
borne witness to the truth in every tongue:
And did not Jesus sing a psalm that night
when utmost evil strove against the Light?
Then let us sing, for whom he won the fight:
Let every instrument be tuned for praise!
Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise!
And may God give us faith to sing always:
Be a part of the whole Creation singing Alleluia!*
