Music is a powerful tool which is used to touch people’s lives. In worship, we sing hymns together; listen to adult and children’s choirs sing anthems; experience the range of human emotion expressed by instrumentalists; and are uplifted by the powerful sounds of the organ. Music opens new ways to express our praise to God and serves as an expression of our joy, gratitude, and even lament. Music can lead us into deeper reflection on God’s Word and help us to sense God’s presence in new ways.
