Music Notes:
Hebrews 13:8 says "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever."  

We therefore use music and hymn texts from all ages in our worship.  Today the sung texts include the Psalms of David, a hymn from the fifteenth century, and a text by Fanny Crosby from 1875.  Music to which the texts is sung dates from the twelfth century to the 1990's.  Organ music originates from France, Germany, and Italy, underscoring the omnipresence of God.  (Orgelstück means "organ piece.")
