Music at Trinity

By Jerry Rich, Director of Music

Summer Choir continues to meet on Sunday mornings 10 a.m. to prepare an anthem for that morning’s 10:30 worship service. On Aug. 30, we will lead the congregation in a hymn sing based on the Worship & Song hymnal. If your favorite is in one of our other hymnals, don’t worry—you’ll find that a lot of well-known melodies have been included in W&S. In case you’d like to request a hymn on August 30, here are 49 singable suggestions:
