Suggested Hymns – Year C

Epiphany / Year C – 2010


“These accompaniments, played on gorgeous instruments by gifted artists, will not only meet the needs of congregations currently without a resident musician, they will also creatively enhance many other ministries and programs of the church…I remember, for example, my home communion visits as a pastor. How wonderful it would have been to take with me the cherished music of the church that had always been such an important part of their life.” –John Thomas, General Minister and President, United Church of Christ
