First Presbyterian Church to present A Festival of Hymns
POCATELLO - Come join us in a hymn festival compiled by Hal Hopson.
Rehearsals will held on Monday evenings at First Presbyterian Church beginning Oct. 1 at 7 p.m. It is open to high school students and adults.
The festival will be presented on Sunday, Nov. 4 at 4 p.m. in the afternoon.
The hymn festival will be directed by Gerald Hughes, director of music ministries at the Presbyterian Church.
In this festival, Hopson has compiled a number of hymns of the Christian church. Included are several traditional favorites, gospel hymns, an African-American spiritual and a favorite from the 20th century, “Lord of the Dance” by Sydney Carter.
In addition to the singing of these hymns by choir and congregation, stories about the hymn writers will be presented, sharing how these hymns express the relationship they have with God.
