Thanks Be to God for the Gift of Music!

Written by: Julia Smolucha

By Lisa Bond

Wear comfortable shoes this Sunday, as we will be up on our feet rejoicing in all of God’s goodness! Join us this Sunday, February 4, at the 9 or 10:30 a.m. worship for our Annual Gospel Sunday worship celebration with Vernon Clark and The Heirs of Joy. Chancel Choir and KUC Youth Choir will also be offering choral testimony about God’s love, strength, and grace. Come and witness Vernon and these devoted singers profess their faith through song. Vernon will be offering a sermon titled The Benefits of Praising the Lord, as well as any other topic inspired by the Holy Spirit.

We are so blessed here at Kenilworth Union Church. Let us come together this Sunday, and thank God for our countless blessings, and God’s boundless grace. As Jo Forrest often states, “Thanks be to God for the gift of music!” Be sure to arrive early to get a good seat, and to hear the prelude, including our own KUC Youth Choir.

Praise the Lord!

Praise God in his sanctuary;
        Praise him in his mighty firmament!

Praise him for his mighty deeds;
        Praise him according to his surpassing greatness!

Praise him with trumpet sound;
        Praise him with lute and harp!

Praise him with tambourine and dance;
        Praise him with strings and pipe!

Praise him with clanging cymbals;
        Praise him with loud clashing cymbals!

Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!
        Praise the Lord!

—Psalm 150
