Virtual Music and Art
Check out our new Music and Arts resources for parents and kids with the theme of “In the Image.” These are a series of various fun activities and songs based on the creation story that you can create, sing and discuss together in whatever way works best for your own home routine. We have created a special page on our church website, www.slpres.org/in-the-image, where you can find recordings, sheet music, “bible beats” spoken rhythms and suggestions for crafts and family worship/discussion time organized into 5 themed modules. We’d love to see what you’re making, hear what you’re learning, and spend time finding out how we are all made “In the Image” of God, and we look forward to a “creative” fall season of music and arts!
Ways Music Can Unite Us
Music is a vital part of being church together. While our ensembles take a break for a little while, here are some of the ways that we can use music to unite us:
- HYMNS – sing the tunes or read the words as a devotion or prayer alone or in your own small group at home.
- RECORDINGS – listen to the sounds of your favorite music when you need inspiration, peace, or joy.
- PRACTICE – use this extra time to improve your musical skills or learn more about making music in a new way.
- COMMUNITY – music is the universal language and participating in it brings us all closer together even in this uncertain time.
Contact Clair if you would be interested in knowing more about participating in upcoming virtual music opportunities at church.
