Perpetuating the Old Hymns of the Church

In the summer of 2014, in the city of Greenwood, IN, complaints about not singing the hymns of the church seem to multiply. Numerous believers missed the hymns in their churches and the deep theology they communicate.
As a result, a retired pastor, a former minister of music and a musically-gifted layman set out to address the complaints. The result, a community hymn sing was born. A strong positive response lead to the sing being repeated twice annually, in the spring and in the fall.
For the spring of 2016, a COMMUNITY HYMN SING will be held on Sunday evening, May 1st at 6:30 pm at the Mt. Pleasant Christian Church whose leadership has graciously made their facility available for the event from the beginning.
Those receiving notice of the event share excitement and anticipation as the date approaches. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if such an event existed in all communities where people from many different churches came together to sing…Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee, along with many other favorites loved by so many?
If you happen to live in the area, why not try to attend. Your walk with God will be greatly enriched. It’s guaranteed. If not, why not explore the possibility of starting one in your community.  The response you get may surprise you.
