Course Description

Most of us probably know at least a few Bible stories and memory verses because of children’s songs learned from teachers, parents, and grandparents. Our hymnody and contemporary music teach Biblical stories and themes, as well. In this course, we will look at favorite hymns and other worship songs, Biblical stories, and Biblical themes for deepening our understanding of our faith. For those charged with planning worship, this exploratory course offers tips and tools for choosing music for congregational singing and ensemble presentations that enhance the themes and stories of Biblical passages chosen for proclamation.
