Music at Paxton UCC
Music is a vital part of worship at First Church.
Hymns and spiritual songs, old and new, inspire our worship and give voice to that which is in our hearts. Music forms our understanding of God and who we are as God’s people. The words we sing declare our heritage and proclaim our faith.
Our primary songbook si the Chalice Hymnal, a collection of hymns, psalms and spiritual songs that explores the breadth of the Christian tradition. The Chalice Hymnal comes to us from one of our partner denominations, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). We supplement our hymnal with a variety of music appropriate for the occasion or liturgical season.
Our music focuses on giving voice to the gathered congregation. During holidays and special occasions, small ensembles and choirs are assembled to provide musical offerings of praise and prayer.
