The music ministry at First Presbyterian Church is guided by Psalm 145: 3-7 (ESV).
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised,
and his greatness is unsearchable.
One generation shall commend your works to another,
and shall declare your mighty acts.
On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.
They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds,
and I will declare your greatness.
They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
Proclaiming the greatness of God and singing God’s story. This is our goal for every worship service. Because God’s story is OUR story, each Sunday we gather as the people of God to sing Biblical truth in ways that draw us deeper into love and adoration of our great Savior and empower us to go forth into the world as the followers of Jesus. (Colossians 3: 16) We remember what the LORD has done for us. We ask and rehearse the answers to life’s most important questions. We relish the opportunity to splash around in the unceasing stream of worship offered by the angels to our Most Holy God (Isaiah 6). We anticipate our glorious future when all things are made new, and we join with the Hosts of heaven to sing around the throne and give all blessing, honor, glory, strength, and power to Him who is seated on the throne and to the Lamb. (Revelation 4, 5, & 7).
In the Contemporary worship service, instrumentalists and vocalists combine their gifts to lead all those gathered in singing the best and richest new songs from today’s songwriters: Matt Papa, Keith and Kristin Getty, Matt Boswell, CityAlight Music.
