Favorites from the Hymnal

Choosing the music each week is a great blessing, but knowing what songs and hymns are favorites from our group makes it easier. We do try to sing a wide variety because both the music and words help us grow, but here is a list of some of the favorites, which is a bit of a window into our hearts.

We sing from the hymnal

Great Hymns of the Faith

Yes, we sing from the hymnal. The tried and true songs and hymns have much to teach us, and the more biblical they are, the more we learn from them. It’s amazing how much depth there is in the verses and refrains, and yet how sing-able they are.

We know that many churches have abandoned hymnals in favor of putting the words up on a video screen, but in keeping with the word ‘traditional’ in our tagline, we will continue to use the hymnal, learning the many wonderful poetic works of praise to God’s grace that it contains, and following along with the notes and timing that represent one of God’s most gracious creations, music.
