Join us on Friday, October 27 at 7:30 p.m. for our Reformation Hymn Festival.  

The Apostle Paul exhorted, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God” (Colossians 3:16).  We are to be “filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with [our] heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ” (Ephesians 5:18–21).

“In Old and New Testaments, the people of God have been a singing congregation. The drama of creation, redemption, and the future consummation of Christ’s kingdom give rise to a host of doctrines that fill our hearts with praise and thanksgiving. Of course, the Psalms have always formed the heart and rule for this covenantal response. Filled with the whole spectrum of godly faith, the Psalter gives words to our lament, petition, praise, and longing.”
