“Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with lute and harp!
Praise him with tambourine and dance;
praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with clanging cymbals;
Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!”
Psalm 150:3-6 NRSV
Music can be such a diverse form of communicating with God. It's possible for the same piece of music to be both a way of praising the Lord for one person, and a way of the Lord giving complete healing and/or understanding for another. Our music ministry, here at First UMC, strives for guiding our congregation with music. We try to share music with the congregation that is meaningful and helps us to grow and deepen our relationships with Christ.
Here are some ways God uses our musical talents…
-Special combined service choir
-Harborfest Ecumenical Service
-Special Guest Concerts (Scott Krippayne & Robin Mark)
