Congregational music invites neighbors into a corporate and immediate act of creation. Communal music-making is exactly that: making, creating, and re-creating. In communal music-making, we mirror God’s rhythmic and intentional song of creation in Genesis: we give life to something that is intangible, vast, and transcendent.
When we create music together, we offer our unique selves to our neighbors. While our music-making may result in a unified moment of sound, it is only made possible by the acceptance and inclusion of our differing voices and instruments, or the willingness to share the experience with others.
Just as persons of all social statuses, gender identities, races, sexualities, skin colors, abilities, ages, and social classes are welcomed to the communion table, so, too, are all persons, voices, instruments, and abilities welcomed into the song of the church.
In other words, all are welcomed and all are needed to make music at First Presbyterian Church of Dallas— there’s a seat saved for you.
Sunday worship is one of the primary ways we join together to make music. Learn more about singing along, in-person or online.
