July 10 – July 31

“Oh come, let us sing to the Lord,” the writer of Psalm 95 invites all who have experienced God’s love to respond.  Worship & music are an interwoven practice that would be next to impossible for us to separate.  But there’s no one way to make music, and we celebrate the variety of ways we have to lift our voices to God.  Each week during this summer series we’ll use a different musical setting to shape our worship and tell the story of God’s love at work in the world.

Sunday, July 10 – Folk
Text: Psalm 95:1-7
Preacher: Debbie Jorgens
A Joyful Noise | It’s in the nature of music to be transformative, truly reflective of God’s story and its capacity to change lives.

Sunday, July 17 – Classical
Text: Psalm 67
Preacher: Pastor Betsy Hoium
“With Stringed Instruments, a Song” | One of the gifts of the language of music is how universally it can be shared, enjoyed and understood.  What more perfect medium for sharing God’s story?

Sunday, July 24 – Jazz & Praise
Text: Psalm 150
Preacher: Pastor Peter Christ
A Good Horn Section | I often say, “I’m a sucker for a band with a good horn section.”  Given the breadth, depth and fullness of God, why wouldn’t we use every possible instrument to sing our praises to God?

Sunday, July 31 – World Music
Text: Colossians 3:12-17
Preacher: Pastor Betsy Hoium
With Gratitude in Your Heart | God in and through Jesus has shown us a vision of the world as it is created to be.  With our bodies and all our breath, we give thanks.
