Music has been at the heart of worship in the Judeo-Christian tradition from the earliest times. David, the second king of Israel, was a talented musician who composed many of the Psalms. The apostle Paul encouraged the Christian community of Colossae to “sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude” in their hearts. Plainchant facilitated the spread of Christianity throughout Europe, and every major Christian movement has been defined by the music that proclaims its message.
Indeed, music has resounded with the walls of this sacred space since it was constructed nearly 150 years ago. The hymns, psalms, and anthems we sing each week are vital part of the church's worship, offered to the glory of God and for the nurture of God's people. If you have a musical talent to share, we would be delighted to hear from you!
