Music and Fine Arts

"Music is a funnel into the heart through which should pour the word of God."

With this simple statement, attributed to John Calvin, the theologian identifies two fundamental characteristics of the ministry of music. First, he evokes the great beauty and power of music: Music is a funnel into the heart. Second, he directs that the music of worship be theologically disciplined ...through which should pour the word of God.

First Presbyterian Church strongly affirms the ability of music and the arts to address and engage us as a religious people. Our ministry of Music and Fine Arts aspires to the highest standards of artistic excellence, taking care to clearly communicate the various roles of music and the arts in the spiritual formation and corporate worship of our congregation.

It is our prayer that you will be blessed by the Ministry of Music and Fine Arts at First Presbyterian.
