On behalf of the Music Committee, our Senior Minister, Reverend Dale Rosenberger and our Music Director, Dan Hague we invite you to join us this Sunday, January 29, for Hymnfest.
Members of the Congregation will speak about Hymns in which they will share personal associations, emotional ties, or just plain favorites among the selections. Also, Dan Hague, will give a meditation on the history of hymns, why we sing them in church, and where this music comes from.
My Baptist grandmother use to say to me: “Singing a song is equivalent to praying twice!” I believe grandma absolutely knew what she was talking about. Music is the heartbeat of the church. The First Congregational Church of Darien has been blessed with many talented singers and musicians – we must rejoice over this!
In the letter to the Ephesians 5:19-20 its states: “as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, singing and making melody to the Lord in your hearts, giving thanks to God the Father at all times and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Let us give thanks this weekend to Jesus Christ and sing loudly the hymns of our faith. Come, this Sunday, and “Sing Out”.
