“Praise the LORD! I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart, In the company of the upright, in the congregation.”
– Psalm 111:1
God has blessed our church with many talented musicians, and we endeavor to provide opportunities for all who feel called to participate in the ministry of music. Our ensembles span a wide range of genres and provide opportunities for musicians of all ages and ability. We invite you to learn more about the many music groups here at First UMC and to join us in singing, playing, and dancing in praise of God.
Our Philosophy – Theology of Music
The philosophy-theology of music at First UMC of Hollidaysburg, PA is based on four basic and important considerations:
1) All music should be presented by the inspiration of Christ and to the glory of God.
2) All music serves to open the hearts and minds of our congregations to the Word.
3) All music should serve as an act of worship.
4) All music should be thoughtful and excellent so as to pervade all areas of activity in the church. If you feel a calling to volunteer your time and gifts in praise of the living God as a part of one of our ensembles or as a soloist please call us at (814)695-4411 ext. 227, or stop in to visit.
We hope to hear from you soon.
