The History of Contemporary Worship

Peel House Parlor

Sundays: June 2 - 23

Tuesdays: June 4 - 25 with child care provided

Led by Lori Duncan

The launch of our contemporary service is quickly approaching! As we prepare to embrace a new worship style that we hope brings new people along with it, let’s take some time to learn about the history and theology of contemporary praise and worship. Utilizing the book, “A History of Contemporary Praise & Worship: Understanding the Ideas that Reshaped the Protestant Church,” by Lester Ruth and Lim Swee Hong, we will look at the “whys” and “hows” behind this way of worshiping, focusing on its musical expression. The class will also be offered on Tuesday nights, with child care provided. Our new Minister of Contemporary Worship, Jeremy Ashida, will join us in our final sessions to help us practice what we’ve learned!

Coming Soon:
