Join St. Matthew Trinity today after church for a Music Ministry Town Hall, held in-person and online!

Music accesses and expresses deep feelings far more powerfully than words alone. If we experience worship as boring, that feeling is most likely to come from a deficit in either the sermon or the music. We are thankful to have a pastor who excels in giving sermons. And, at the same time, we are devastated to have lost our fabulous music minister, Richard Brode. Now, we need to figure out where to go from here.

It is extremely important that we know what we want when we search for and call a new music minister. To that end, we will hold a “town hall” style in-person and Zoom meeting after church today, so everyone who wants to will have a voice in shaping the future of music at SMT.

Think of the high points in your church year such as on Christmas Eve and Easter Sunday. Music may well be the first thing that comes to mind. What brings you closer to God? Chances are that the kind of music you hear and are asked to sing is integral to your feelings.

Music is something we both hear and sing when we worship. This is related to the fact that worship is both call and response. The call of God reaches the depths of our hearts with special power through music, and our singing expresses with special power the deepest response of our hearts to God.

We encourage each of you to join our meeting to discuss the future of music at SMT. If you are unable to attend in person, please join via this Zoom link.

We'll see you there!
