ABOUT THE INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC

Four members of the St. Nicholas Chimers will play during the service today.

For prelude they share an arrangement of “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God”.  This  well-known hymn of the church was composed by Martin Luther (1483-1546 A.D.).  Luther was the great theologian who founded the Protestant Reformation from whence our denomination eventually evolved.

For offertory the chimers will play gospel hymn “What A Friend We Have In Jesus” whose music was composed by American attorney Charles Converse (1832-1918 A.D.).

The organ postlude for today is “Finale” by English composer William Wolstenholme (1865-1931 A.D.).

After Coffee Hour the St. Nicholas Folk Ensemble will have their first rehearsal of the season.  We have interesting music to work on which we will share in church when ready.  The music is not difficult and is fun to sing.  Please join us!
