Music Sunday

This week in worship, we celebrate our congregation's 79th "Music Sunday": a celebration not only of our community of faith's own vocal and instrumental musicians and music ministries, but also of the power of music to inform, shape, and inspire our life of faith.  As one beloved prayer confesses to God, "All your works, the height and the depth, echo the silent music of your praise."  Especially for Christians of the "free Church" traditions in which The United Church finds its roots (we who are not required to follow a uniform set liturgy), what we sing together often becomes our unofficial common "prayerbook".  Similarly, what we sing together often expresses our commonly-held theologies even more than do the pages of scripture or our official creeds and theological confessions.

Our worship service will feature a constellation of choral anthems sung by our Choir, including a song in Korean with which members of our Korean-speaking community will be joining; piano repertoire from Dr. Emma Shi, our music director, as well as from two of her students; and a number of great hymns for the whole congregation to sing together. 

Following worship, all in-person worshippers are invited to stick around for conversation and refreshments following the service, hosted by the Choir and featuring wonderful fresh strawberry desserts and related treats!
