WORSHIP RESOURCES

RESOURCES & DETAILS

 

Communion

- Every First Sunday of the Month

We celebrate the sacrament of communion each month. The congregation remains seated and bread and non-alcoholic wine are passed around.

Bread: When the bread is passed, we take and hold it until all are served, then eat it together at the same time as a symbol of our unity in Christ.

Wine: When the wine is passed, we drink on our own as a symbol of our individual relationship with Christ.

Our Hymnal - "Glory to God"

Glory to God is the new Presbyterian hymnal, published in 2013. It contains 853 hymns, psalms, and songs. About 400 hymns are carried over from the 1990 blue hymnal. There are more than 450 new hymns that come from older Presbyterian hymnals, other songbooks, and individual composers and authors.

Glory to God includes a complete Psalter of singable Psalms and enough music for a complete Taizé service. There are liturgical texts to serve as a model for Reformed worship, and a brief note is included with each hymn, providing information about its music, theology, or history.

Glory to God reflects the diversity of the church, incorporating many different musical styles: traditional, spirituals, folk, gospel, jazz, contemporary, and global music are all well-represented.

If you'd like to practice hymns, check out Hymnary.org where you can view, read texts, and listen to recordings of hymns from "Glory to God".
