World Communion Sunday Music

global music

World Communion Sunday is a celebration that promotes Christian unity and ecumenical cooperation. It is observed on the first Sunday of October.

 

Our worship music Sunday will reflect the universality of Christian music.   The 1990 Presbyterian Hymnal did a terrific job of introducing global music to the Presbyterian Church.  And the 2003 hymnal supplement Sing the Faith includes even more world music from Europe Africa, and Asia, as well as African-American and Hispanic American music.
